EDGE Reading at The Elliott Bay Book Co

ArtistTrust Elliott Bay Book reading

For the past six weeks, I have spent my Saturdays learning the business of writing as part of the EDGE Professional Development Program for Literary Artists.  I am grateful to Artist Trust for supporting my study with funds from the Latino/a Scholarship for Career Training.

On Sunday, April 14th from 1 to 4 p.m., I and the other EDGE graduates gathered to read at The Elliott Bay Book Company at 1521 Tenth Avenue in Seattle, Washington, which is truly an honor and a pleasure for me because I have loved that store since high school, when my mom moved to Seattle and brought me to their old Pioneer Square location, where we  wandered through the aisles of lovely books.

Special thanks go to Karen Maeda Allman from Elliott Bay and Nichole DeMent from Artist Trust for their dedication to supporting literature with vital organization skills.
