Willamette Writers on the River November 2016 Meeting


Monday, November 21, 2016 from 6:30–8:30 PM

First Presbyterian Church, Dennis Hall, Corvallis, OR (Use 9th Street parking lot entrance – others will be locked)


Got a pile of writing (from NaNoWriMo, for instance)? In this interactive presentation and discussion you’ll explore ways to approach it and what your next steps might be. The workshop will include visualization, writing, discussion, and laughter. No need to bring your work in; all you need is the desire to move ahead.

Kate Gray’s passion is being a teacher, a writing coach, and a volunteer writing facilitator with women inmates and women veterans. She is the author of three poetry collections, and her first novel, Carry the Sky (Forest Avenue, 2014), stares at bullying without blinking. In Any More, Black Shoe, her novel-in- progress set in 1953, Sylvia Plath and Maureen Buckley, the younger sister of William F. Buckley, Jr., step into and out of roles prescribed by race, class, gender and religion. Kate and her partner live in a purple house in Portland, Oregon, with Rafi and Wasco, their two very patient dogs.
