i can change

The Observatory, Spokane, WA           April 2016

As the culmination of the Heavy Edit zine project and to launch issue three, I put on a reading and art show in conjunction with Spokane's annual literary festival. In addition to showing off the works-in-progress from the three issues, writers read their drafts and talked to the audience about their writing process, the elements they'd added or deleted as their pieces took shape and what that editing and changing idea meant to them. Readers were Julia Rox, Lois, Claire McQuerry, Fitz Fitzpatrick, Stephanie Aguilar, Kris Dinnison, and Ellen Welcker. The work below is by Sarah Fay, Devon Plopper, Amoe, Marcus Brown, Molly Mendoza, Mattea Sattler, and Sage Howard.
