Looking forward to heading out to Ellensburg next week for a reading at CWU. I'm thinking I might try to debut the whole "Expedition of the Vaccine" series, or at least a large part of it. But I'm not sure if it's ready. If you are on the east side of the pass, come on down! See info and link below:
Lion Rock Visiting Writers Series and other Special Events
The English: Writing Specialization sponsors the Lion Rock Visiting Writers Series of readings. These readings occur every quarter and feature nationally known writers reading their own work. We have hosted two winners of the MacArthur Genius Award, as well as the WA State Poet Laureate, and recipients of NEA Fellowships and other major prizes. Each spring, students enrolled in ENG 468: Contemporary Writers Colloquium (an upper level multi-genre writing workshop), meet with three visiting writers from the Lion Rock Visiting Writers Series. We also sponsor talks by professional editors and publishers, readings by faculty and students, including open mics, and an annual reading for students who have their work published in CWU’s literary magazine, Manastash. Past readers in the Lion Rock Visiting Writers Series include Lucia Perillo, Anthony Doerr, Major Jackson, Kim Barnes, Linda Beirds, David Guterson, David Wojahn, Prageeta Sharma and Sam Green.
