We’re Having Another Literary Event

2013-07-07 disaster_sm

As you know, I’m a member of the Portuguese Artists Colony, “a collection of untrustworthy characters who gather regularly to engage in the disreputable act of writing.” We regularly stage performances of poetry, fiction, plays, screenplays, music and uncivil behavior — and July 7 is our next show, with some awesome guests:

  • Elizabeth Bernstein is the founding editor of the literary magazine The Big Ugly Review and teaches short story workshops at the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto.
  • Seth Fischer’s writing is in Best Sex Writing 2013, PANK, The Rumpus, Buzzfeed, Guernica, and elsewhere, and he has a notable essay in The Best American Essays 2013.
  • Maw Shein Win was co-founder of Comet and is currently a co-publisher for Stretcher, plus she’s a freelancer at the SF Writers’ Grotto.
  • Heather Yager, of Ladies in Blouses, will provide the tunes.
