YOU ARE: A reader. A writer. Someone with three hours free on a Saturday morning and the hankering to think and talk about prose. In possession of a narrative urge. A memoirist with a novel in him. A short story writer with a secret passion for the essay. A craft class addict. A first-time student. A person who knows that story and fact always intertwine.
I AM: A fiction writer. A teacher who thrives in unusual classrooms. An author whose first book is coming out in April (it's non-fiction). A remote-living quasi-hermit who craves conversation with other writers. A University of Alaska Anchorage MFA alum. A reader.
WE WILL: Circle up and meet each other. Explore what other writers have to say about fiction and non-fiction. Talk about prose. Discuss our projects, fiction and non, and receive input from each other. Write. Read aloud. Leave with a list of further resources, a new connection to interesting people, and the pride that comes from being part of Alaska's amazing writing community.
Register in advance. Bring a friend. See you there!
