Don’t Write What You Know – Fiction Reading

Tonight I’ll be hosting and reading fiction along with stellar Portland writers Jason Arias (author of Momentary Illumination of Objects in Motion from Black Bomb Books) and Mark Allen Cunningham (author of most recently Perpetua’s Kin from Atelier26 Books).

Books will be for sale and everything you hear will be made up.

This reading is made possible by a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council who provided funding this year to assist in work on my second collection of stories. Thanks RACC!

Six Week Short Story Intensive (August/September 2018)

Just like you asked for, here is the longer Short Story Intensive through Literary Arts.

After some student requests, the Short Story Intensive I’ve been teaching at Literary Arts has been expanded to a 6 week class, which means we’ll spend even more time discussing writing, readings and our own work.

Here is the info from the Literary Arts site:

Write a draft of a short story in six weeks. Class includes an emphasis on character, voice, and how to mine detail inside a scene. Class time will be spent on generating ideas for plot and character; participants will have the opportunity to get feedback on some of their writing and learn techniques for establishing a consistent writing practice so they can revise their draft once the class is done.

August 21 – September 25
Tuesdays 6:30 p.m.- 9:30 p.m. (6 class meetings)
Class meets at Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington.
For writers at all levels 
Limited to 10 students
