NOVEMBER 2017 INFO:

As late autumn gathers its storms and people gather to give thanks, WordsWest Literary Series welcomes poet Sharon Bryan and author Gretchen Schrafft for “Gathering,” an evening of wit and investigation, a close look at how we are coming of age at every age. The event will also feature a bake sale, including apple pie, with 100% of the proceeds going to the West Seattle Food Bank. WordsWest Literary Series is grateful for grant funding from Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and Poets & Writers, Inc. that allows us to pay our writers for their time and talent.

Sharon Bryan’s most recent books are Sharp Stars and Flying Blind. She received two NEA awards for her work, and a Governor’s Award and Artist Trust grant from the State of Washington. She is on the faculty of the Lesley low-residency MFA in Creative Writing in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Gretchen Schrafft is a fiction writer, educator, and freelance journalist. Her fiction and reportage have appeared in Carve, Hobart, Joyland, The Rumpus, The Huffington Post, and San Francisco magazine, among other places. She teaches creative writing at Seattle University, and is working on a short story collection and a novel.

Every third Wednesday, 7pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month a community member from a local, independent business shares his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On November 15th, we welcome a favorite poem from representatives of the West Seattle Food Bank.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw, and this season’s intern/co-curator is Joannie Stangeland. Join us on FaceBook at https://www.facebook.com/WordsWestLiterary
