Nov. 12: Visiting writers hold reading, discuss publishing

Stephanie-Lenox-by-Sabina-Samiee-Oregon-Arts-Commission-webHeather-Hummel-webPULLMAN, Wash. – An award-winning blogger for the Huffington Post and a co-founder of the online literature quarterly Blood Orange Review will read from their work and take questions at a free, public event at 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, in the Museum of Art/Washington State University.

At noon that day they will join a public panel discussion with area publishers in the Bundy Reading Room, Avery Hall, to discuss trends and tips.

Stephanie Lenox and Heather K. Hummel also will lead a workshop – about the unique challenges of editing for an online publication – for WSU students in all majors 6-9 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, Nov. 9-11, in CUE 416 and 418.

“These two poets clearly have a vision for online literary publishing,” said Peter Chilson, WSU professor of English. “Students and community will really benefit from their expertise.”
