Writer’s Block Literary Festival is back!

18 Feb

Your on-campus, student-organized, completely FREE celebration of the written word will be happening Friday, March 5 in Savery Hall!

It’ll be an afternoon full of a wide variety of events led or performed by professionals from the Seattle area and from our own campus. This is a great chance to meet inspiring figures from the Pacific Northwest & and learn and participate in different literary modes! This year’s theme is Epiphany | flashes of inspiration and is reflected in the event schedule.

A sample of events:

Shake Like a Jelly or Write with a Spine: Flash Fiction for Creative Writers Trapped in the Shallows | a workshop led by professional writer Skye Moody

Haiku Workshop: Beyond the 5-7-5- Rule (a favorite from last year!) | led by haiku expert Michael Dylan Welch

Reading of Down the Road the Children Go | by local poet Dan Peters and Blue Begonia Press

Also: performance by the Collective, the UW improve troupe, writer’s workshop by Bricolage, the UW literary journal, and more!

The festival will happen on March 5, in Savery rooms 138 and 139, starting at 3:30p and ending around 9p. Attend all the events or just your favorites!

The festival is sponsored by the English honor society, Sigma Tau Delta.
