Speed Writing & Reading Holiday Party

Let’s kick off the Holiday Season with some fast-paced writing and short but powerful reading sessions! The format is simple. We alternate five-minute readings with 15-minute mini writing workshops that start with a craft talk and end with a writing prompt. Five readings, four workshops, so you’ll not only leave the event inspired but you’ll have some new writing too!

Book Launch Reading with Christine Stewart-Nunez

"Accomplished poet Christing Stewart- Nunez's first book of essays lets us travel, decipher secrets, feel fabric through our fingers in Turkish markets, watch Holden through his young mother's eyes. . . The essays glow golden under our eyes as the writer conjures meaning from life to life. This book is a triumph -- for her and for readers."   -- Hilda Raz

Christine Stewart-Nuñez is the author and editor of several books of poetry, including The Poet & The Architect (2021), Untrussed (2016) and Bluewords Greening (2016), winner of the 2018 Whirling Prize. Chrysopoeia: Essays of Language, Love, and Place, new from Stephen F. Austin State University Press, is her first book of prose. Essays in Chrysopoeia appeared in North American Review, Shenandoah, and The Pinch among other magazines, and several earned notable listings and/or awards. Christine served as South Dakota’s poet laureate from 2019-2021, and her work has been the basis for international, cross-artistic collaborations with colleagues in music, dance, visual art, and architecture. With ties to Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota, Christine now lives in Winnipeg where she teaches in women’s and gender studies at the University of Manitoba. christinestewartnunez.com.

First Friday Reading - March 2023

First Friday Reading with Terese Svoboda

Date: Friday, March 3, 2023

Time: Noon CENTRAL TIME

Format: Zoom

First Friday Reading - March 2023

Terese Svoboda, an acclaimed poet, novelist, and memoirist will be reading from her 7th novel Dog on Fire.

Everyone likes ghost stories – except Dog on Fire isn't exactly that. Imagine a sad-funny elegy, Cather channeling Saunders, with infusions of sly wit. Imagine a sibling who is so inscrutable he seems to be from another family entirely, who dies before you get to know him. Of course the family is dysfunctional: an alcoholic mother who carves wax guns, a father whose passion is smoking anything vaguely edible, a sister who hears her dead brother in a door molding.  A dreadful dust storm gets the book off to a good start with a glimpse of its shovel-wielding ghost. What the book does best is haunt.
