Gint Aras, Julie Brandon, Donna Wise Coombs, Laura Knapp & R.G. Ziemer will be featured at Waterline Writers on Sunday, March 19th at 7 pm, sharing fiction and poetry that shapeshift listener perceptions of identity, relationship and reality.
Gint Aras will share one chapter from The Fugue, of which Dimitry Samarov of the The Chicago Tribune says “the story loops in on itself, episodes echo over decades, different people often seem to trade thoughts and threads of conversation as if picking them out of the ether and … dreams described by one person are overtaken by another”. Buy a signed copy for $15 or sign up for the 8-week Gint Aras Prose Writing Workshop!
Julie Brandon’s “The Last One In” is her first foray into science fiction but it keeps you on the edge of your seat, or her character’s seat or wait … who is in that seat?
No matter what Donna Wise Coombs is writing about, her poetry seems steeped in the beauty of the states she’s called home — Colorado and Oregon. She’ll share some of that distilled beauty with us on Sunday night!
Laura Knapp’s Pushcart-nominated story should be kept handy for those days when your co-workers make you wild and you long for a little “Natural Selection” in the workplace.
Ray Ziemer blends his Chicago South Sider’s voice with a Southern-writer gravitas, evident in his story The Shiner, which packs a left hook you won’t see coming, and his poem The Hobby Shop, which will have you thinking more deeply about vocations and avocations.
Other writers can join the 5-minute-limit Open Mic at 8:30. Admission is $5/$3 students. Join us in the art gallery at Water Street Studios 160 S. Water Street, Batavia, and enjoy the evening with wine and beer from Solemn Oath Brewery and Bright Angel Wines ($5), and artisanal meats and cheeses from The Market at Gaetano’s!
Wooden Writers will be on hand with beautiful, hand-tooled pens for sale, $15-$75, cash/check or orders accepted.
No event will be held on April 16th due to Easter. There will be one more event on May 21st before our June-August hiatus. The 2017-2018 season will begin on September 17th.
