WORDS         STRUCTURES         STRATEGIES        IDENTITIES          



Flash fiction is a small and powerful beast that will bite you in the ass if you’re lucky.

Think of a moment that left a mark and ask yourself where its teeth are. In this class, I worked with students to examine the particular bite marks of a variety of flash fictions and work on sharpening their own teeth in this condensed and intense prose form. The workshop included time spent reading and discussing examples from masterful flash fiction authors and generating work from prompts that took students into the surrounding coastal landscape. 


A writer and curator exploring the liminal spaces of the literary arts. I am the author of two chapbooks and have fiction, reviews, and poetry published widely. My interest in how words can be experienced has led to solo work and collaborations to create installations, music performances, broadsides, karaoke, and video poetry. I founded and directed Till, a literary organization that offered an annual writing residency, and am currently co-director of Cadence Video Poetry Festival at Northwest Film Forum.
