I’m thrilled to announce the culmination of my project, The Seattle Youth Novelist Project. Join us as we celebrate at a Final Reading on Friday, October 28 at 7:30pm, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. This summer I mentored four young folks who are writing novels. Come hear excerpts from works-in-progress by Olivia Bernard, Byron Patten, Kaitlyn Triebes, and Hannah Walstad. The reading will also feature work from Karen Finneyfrock and Youth Speaks Seattle poets Yi Hui and Rajean Diaz. The projects is supported by The City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. The event is free.
