I am currently working on my second novel and seeking part-time employment after relocating to my home state of Washington. While I’ve enjoyed reading at open mics and have discovered a thriving writing community here in Spokane, I look forward to giving more readings and teaching writing workshops very soon!
PREVIOUS EVENTS (2015-2016):
Impact Your Reader: Weaving Concrete Description with Abstract Thought
with author Rebecca Snow
Saturday, April 30, 1-3 pm
Where: MaryLynn Gillaspie Photography, 908 Main Street, Louisville, CO
RSVP here: Colorado Writing School
How much of your writing is too abstract? How much concrete detail is too much? And how do you find the balance? Overwhelming the reader with descriptive detail can slow down your writing to the point of tedium, but too much abstraction means writing empty of vivid imagery. We want to appeal to the reader’s five senses while inspiring them to dive into our story. We will also consider how masters of writing style vary sentence structure to weave their words into lyrical rhythm. This class will focus on narrative prose (fiction/nonfiction) but poets are welcome!

Ekphrastic Opening Reception at the Valkarie Gallery, September 25, 2015. Two different artists–without seeing what the other was doing–made ekphrastic art from poems, including one of mine and several others from local poets. In the photo, the book artist, Valerie Savarie, is on the right, and the painter, Sharon Eisley, is not pictured/out of town. Very neat to see people reading the poems and looking at how the artists interpreted them. Valerie used antique Book of Knowledge volumes for all the book art.
