This weekend in literature: Terroir Creative Writing Festival and Ink Noise Review

This weekend, I’ll be at a couple of writing-related events in Oregon, if you’re in the area and want to say hi.

terroir-2014-for-fb-hi-res-ver-4On Saturday, April 19, I’ll be down in McMinnville at the Terroir Creative Writing Festival, held on the Yamhill campus of Chemeketa Community College. I went last year in support of my friend Monica Drake and as a geekboy fan of Nicole J. Georges, and I loved the whole event. (It’s also where I met Lynda Phillippi, who later interviewed me for her TV program Arts Alive.)

At this year’s festival, I’m not a panelist, but I’ll be attending all day, and I do plan on reading at the open mic that wraps up the festival. I’ll also be bringing copies of my chapbook, Box Cutters, so if you still haven’t bought a copy or would like to get one signed, come find me.

The next evening, on April 20, I’ll be rejoining the Ink Noise Review reading series. This time, I’m serving as an “appetizer” to the main event, a kind of pre-reading warm-up, so my bit will be brief. But stick around, because after me, you’ll get to enjoy my friend Jenny Forrester, as well as my new friend Adam Strong, and a whole crew of other talented folks.

This is all going down at the Jade Lounge in SE Portland. My bit starts at 7 pm, so don’t be late! Oh, and I’ll have copies of Box Cutters there, too, if you want to buy one.
