Change is in the air.
We see it, we read about it, we breathe it in.
Poet and Teacher F. Douglas Brown hosted our first in The FRIDAY FRAMEWORK series on October 2nd, bringing together three BIPOC poets: bridgette bianca, Nandi Comer, and Aricka Foreman. The reading & discussion was recorded and can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
This was a powerful event; these poets shared their literary work and their experiences, providing an opportunity for a deeper understanding of our times and what we might do to make space for more conversation and promote action.
Watch the full event HERE. Mark you calendar for our next FRIDAY FRAMEWORK on December 4th.
At 7pm Central, you can join our reading and discussion with Donna Miscolta, author of the short story collection LIVING COLOR: Angie Rubio Stories. Donna will read from her new book (published by Jaded Ibis Press) and talk “about how the veiled racism Angie Rubio experiences in Living Color enters our consciousness at an early age and what happens when it’s said out loud.”
As usual, this event is free and there’s still time to register!
Soon we will have news of the cover for Lyndsey Ellis’ debut novel, BONE BROTH (forthcoming in May 2021). Keep an eye out. This design speaks to the story so well. You don’t want to miss the reveal and the interview between Lyndsey and artist Jade Burell!
We also have our next Author Workshop set and open for registration, this one on crafting an effective ending to your story, your essay, your novel.
Often, we struggle with knowing when to end, as much as where to end. Or perhaps we can envision the ending but cannot find the right words to convey that image on paper. In this session ELLEN BIRKETT MORRIS takes us through some effective stories endings and helps us unpack the journey the writer took and the hints they left along the way that lead us to this powerful dénouement.
Join me and Ellen on Saturday, November 7th, 12:00-2:00pm Central. Registration is easy, and Ellen has published her own collection of short stories with endings that leave readers satisfied and yet thinking of the characters long after.
I hope to see you online at one of our events, either the workshop or our upcoming Small Press Author Readings. In the meantime, keep those pens moving and those pages turning.
