New Town Revue double fiction extravaganza, February 8!

We’ve finalized our lineup for the next New Town Revue, and it includes two fiction writers, Scott Daughtridge, founder of the Atlanta reading series Lost in the Letters, and Gabrielle Fuentes, a PhD student in creative writing at the University of Georgia. They will be joined by musician Melanie Morgan of the band Between Naybors.

Date: Saturday, February 8, 6:30-7:30 PM

Location: Avid Bookshop, 493 Prince Avenue.

Scott Daughtridge was educated in a thrift store in Acworth, Georgia. His work has been featured in Dogzplot, Curbside Splendor, The Broken Plate, Matchbook and other places. You can find out more at

Gabrielle Fuentes’s work has appeared in PankThe Coffin Factory, NANO Fiction, Western Humanities Review, The Collagist, and elsewhere. She received her MFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder and is a Doctoral Candidate in Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Georgia, Athens. She recently completed her first novel.

Melanie Morgan grew up in a small town in Germany. In 1995 she moved with her Jamaican husband to the United States and in 2001 they decided to make Athens their hometown and raise their two children there. Enjoying everything Athens had to offer as a music town, 7 years later Melanie decided to pick up her daughter’s unused guitar and fell in love with the instrument. She started teaching herself, then moved on to take guitar lessons, playing with neighbors and eventually much to her own surprise started writing her own songs. Her songs are about anything that comes to her mind and range from social injustice to the next shopping dilemma.  Mostly she plays with a band called Between Naybors, but sometimes you can see her braving the stage by herself.
