It’s only about one week until the August Fbomb Surprise! 7:30 PM Tuesday August 14th at the Mercury Café 2199 California St, Denver, CO 80205.
There are few writing techniques more impactful than surprising the reader with something they do not expect. Not a trick, but something done in an unexpected way. Well, surprise! Fbomb Denver will be on the second Tuesday of August instead of the third for the first time the writer of this description is aware, perhaps ever.
To celebrate our surprise, host David S. Atkinson brings us Natanya Ann Pulley. Natanya Ann Pulley is a Diné writer of fiction and non-fiction. She’s published work in numerous journals including The Collagist, The Offing, McSweeney’s, Waxwing, and As/Us. Her essays have been anthologized in #NotYourPrincess: Voices of Native American Women, Creating a Compass: Essays for New Creative Writing Teachers, Women Write Resistance, and more. A former editor of Quarterly West and South Dakota Review, she is currently the founding editor of the Colorado College literary journal, Hairstreak Butterfly Review. Natanya is an assistant professor of English at Colorado College where she teaches Literature by Native American writers, Fiction Writing, and Experimental Forms in Ethnic Literature. Her short story collection With Teeth will be published Fall 2019 by New Rivers Press as a 2018 winner of the Many Voices Project competition.
We will also have a number of special guest readers: April Bradley, Pavlos Stavropoulos, Jayne Martin, Anne Weisgerber, Chelsea Voulgares, Nancy Stohlman, and Paul Beckman. Open mic spots will be available, though fewer than are normally available due to the number of guests…so arriving early to claim a spot is recommended.
