Featured (monthly) Readings
You, Yourself as Prompt
November 13 at the Olympic Center at 7:00 p.m
Artists often rely who they themselves are as inspiration for their work. On November 13 at the Olympic Center at 7:00 p.m., Tim Sherry will lead a workshop entitled You, Yourself as Prompt, that will encourage attendees to explore their own experiences,beliefs, and values as prompts for writing. Based loosely on the typical conversation starters that we all use—like “Where do youlive?” “What do you do?”—the workshop will suggest how such questions sometimes are the best places to start writing.
Tim Sherry, a long-time public high school teacher and principal, has lived most of his life in Tacoma, Washington. After keeping his writing private during his working years, since retirement his poetry has appeared in Rattle, Seminary Ridge Review, Raven Chronicles, and Crab Creek Review, among others. His first full-length collection, One of Seven Billion, was published in 2014 byMoonpath Press; and a second collection, Holy Ghost Town, willbe published in 2019 by Cirque Press.
