Because You Asked: A Book of Answers on the Art and Craft of the Writing Life
EDITED BY KATRINA ROBERTS
Borne out of over 15 years curating the Visiting Writers Reading Series at Whitman College, Katrina Roberts’s Because You Asked is an anthology that brings together anecdotes, approaches, aspirations, confessions, warnings, challenges, passions, foibles, secrets, prompts, craft notes, manifestos-that is, perspectives from writers, their insights and revelations shared often during “Q and A sessions” with young (or simply young-at-heart) writers and readers. A peek inside the writing life, for readers of all sorts!
Come celebrate the opening of 347 S. Clarence this weekend, November 6, 7 & 8.
The space blows my mind; the art takes my breath away; and Saturday night’s readers are so astonishing and innovative, they’re sharing the bill with bands. (And did I mention they’re actually letting me hang art on the walls?)
Readings start 7pm, Saturday Nov. 7th.
Behold! You will be treated to readings by Chad Sweeney • Felicia Sullivan • Michelle Bracken • Ruben Ty Rodriguez • Mandy Kahn • Allyson Jeffredo
This November 2015 show proves that it is possible to find an alternative space and transform it, to gather a community and foment it, to step out of the studio and show work within a white-walled space of holy square footage, and to excite artistic, interdisciplinary, and community cross-pollination.
