PACIFIC ALUMS DISCUSS LIVING A SUSTAINABLE LITERARY LIFE
March 5, 2024, 6:30-8:30 pm PT
at Up Up Books
1211 SE Stark St
Alissa Hattman, Domi Shoemaker, Emmi Greer, and Katey Schultz will discuss creating a sustainable literary life. These four Pacific University alums have built unique literary careers and lives for themselves—as authors, editors, teachers, and organizers. They have published chapbooks, literary journals, collections, and novels; founded reading series, writing schools, and workshop series; and have taught residencies, workshops, and university classes—so there will be no shortage of ideas to discuss. The conversation will be accompanied by a brief reading from each participant and followed by a Q&A with the audience. Join us for what is sure to be an insightful evening!

FLASH IN A FLASH
March 26, 2024
6:30-8 pm ET
Flatiron Writers Room (virtual from anywhere)
Katey will teach Flash in a Flash with the Flatiron Writers Room. Flash is one of the most popular genres being written and published today. Whether you’re already published, mired in NaNoWriMo drafts, deep into a memoir project, or fully devoted to fiction, the skills required in flash fiction and flash nonfiction will improve your ability to handle scene, embed metaphor, and target a character’s desires with precision. In this class you will learn the defining traits of flash form writing, study noteworthy examples, and begin new flashes from prompts delivered during class time. You will leave the presentation feeling more confident about scene, concision, and that elusive “so what?” factor that can turn anecdotal writing into impactful narrative. Register here!
