‘Tis the season and all.
Redwood Room, Sheraton Seattle, 2nd Floor

10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
This interdisciplinary panel features five writers whose work puts significant distance between speaker and writer—whether by writing across gender, setting, historical time, or conventions of language—to reimagine, challenge, and expand the writer’s or narrator’s persona. Each panelist will provide a short rhetorical and practical framework that focuses on crafting these voices before presenting representative work.
I’ll be reading a little excerpt from Heading North and talking about character grammar and syntax. Even more exciting is the part where I get to be part of a panel with these excellent writers!
I’ll also be reading at Lucid as part of the Festival of Language’s ‘a reading eXperiment,’ on Thursday afternoon from 4:30-6:00 p.m.
The Festival of Language’s a reading eXperiment is an experiment in the reading of original creative works as juxtaposed against expectations, perceptions, other creative works, and audience members. With new and exciting compositions and configurations, this reading eXperiment will be a one-of-a-kind experience for readers and audience members.
Come say hello! I don’t have blue hair anymore, but if you drop a conspicuous hockey or baseball or Beowulf reference within earshot, I’ll be the one with her head on a swivel, trying to find the source.
