Each writer will do a short reading of their work, followed by a post-reading discussion on speculative fiction in the Pacific Northwest. Come for the imaginative fiction, stay for the chuckles.
Jonah Barrett is a nonbinary filmmaker, writer, and multimedia artist. They usually find themself in old haunted buildings or overgrown swamps.
Cecilia Frank lives in Olympia with her fiance and cat. She enjoys writing magical realism when she's not procrastinating on her grad school homework.
Alissa Tu is a Vietnamese writer, dancer, and (maybe) princess. She’s usually watching Sailor Moon or perfecting her pour overs whenever she’s not drowning herself in grad school work.
Logan Fenner is a queer fantasy writer living in the pacific northwest. In his free time, he drinks tea, acquires tattoos, plays with threaded needles, and keeps his library books for too long.
Daniel Wolfert is a musical theater songwriter and the owner and teacher of Horizon Musical Studio. His current major project is a children's scifi and science education musical called JENNA IN THE CITY OF JOULES, which he hopes to bring to a theater in the South Sound next year. Alongside writing musical theater and teaching music, Daniel is an avid reader and persistent, if unpredictable, baker and cook.
