10/28 Live Drawing in Big Sky Country

Posted in Events, Video with tags , , on October 27, 2014 by 6GPress

TOMORROW at 7PM, tune in here for this…

My live 24hour draw-o-thon was such a hit last year I decided to do live drawing events on my website as I travel the country.
My first drawing partner will be Olivia Everett, Creative Director of the Imagine Butte Recourse Center (IBRC) in Butte Montana. The IBRC is the organization hosting my month long residency in Butte. They’ll be opening this arts residency for application by the public very soon. TUNE IN and ask questions by tweeting me @cyberpunkdan

THIS AFTERNOON…

10/24 Marian Szczepanski (fiction, nonfiction) and Angele Ellis (poetry, fiction)

“Springboard Into the Past: Object and Memory in Creative Writing”

Objects and memories can be springboards into writing about the past—in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction that incorporate both personal stories and collective histories. The presenters will combine short readings from their own work with discussion and writing prompts to help students explore the resonance of object and memory.

Imagination Motel coming real soon…

Check out the lovely cover for Imagination Motel,

IM font cover 9-30-14

& the sweet blurb on the back,

Like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, one of the many movies flickering across the ghost screens of Kinder’s haunted hotel rooms, Imagination Motel infiltrates the most American landscape and replaces it with something alien. Only rather than feeling too little, these doppelgangers feel too much; rather than becoming less human, they become all the more so. Imagination Motel is a unique piece of writing that tickled me and made me want to watch every one of those movies all over again. “There is no surprise ending,” Kinder writes. And yet, there is.
—Jacob Bacharach, author of The Bend of the World

& the fun Rege Behe article in today’s Trib about Imagination Motel All That Yellow & Friday’s book launch.

UPDATE: Short Listed.

Just to clarify re: this & the Behe article, the book is called Imagination Motel not Imagination Hotel; & Six Gallery is not now, nor ever has been, Speed & Briscoe. Maybe someday.

Anyway, come to the reading & eat popcorn! Listen to poems! Receive (but wait til you get home to use) a condom! Amazing stuff.
