Portland Review Relaunch Party

Come celebrate the fantastic relaunch issue of Portland Review! Contributors Santi Elijah Holley, Sara Kachelman, Shayla Lawson, and Margaret Malone will read their work, and the new issue will be available for purchase.

Hosted by Literary Arts in downtown Portland, our party is free and open to the public.

Portland Review is produced by the graduate students in Portland State University’s English Department. The journal has been publishing poetry, prose, and art since 1956.

I hope you can join us.

Literary Arts Writing Workshop: 3-Week Short Story Intensive

For three consecutive Wednesdays this winter, I’ll be teaching a Short Story Intensive workshop to a small batch of students.

Wednesday, February 22 – 6:00-9:00PM

Wednesday, March 1- 6:00-9:00PM

Wednesday, March 8- 6:00-9:00PM

We will discuss all elements of the short story, from creating ideas through character, detail, plot, point of view all the way through to revision, and the revision that happens after you think you’re done revising. The pain and the glory both.

Each student will leave with a new story and likely several starts for new work as well.

Literary Arts Reading w/Mike Copperman & Ashley Toliver

What happens when you are the recipient of an Oregon Literary Fellowship? Come to this reading to find out. All three readers have won OLFs and will share from their work with you tonight.

Mike Copperman’s just released memoir TEACHER is the book I can’t stop talking about. It damn near blew me out of chair as I read it.

Please join us in launching Mike’s book at this Portland reading, along with poet and Cave Canem fellow Ashley Toliver.

It promises to knock your socks off.
