"If you can't talk about something, you can't think about something," writer Eula Biss told Krista Tippett. Join me in April as alumni of my classes-- writers of sex, illness, and trauma-- read together for the 2nd Annual Literary Bacchanal on the patio at Tucson Hop Shop.
What stories does a body have to tell? In this two-day workshop, we’ll use the anthology Beautiful Flesh: A Body of Essays to unlock the stories folded into our limbs and organs, considering how different forms and voices allow us to make meaning from our corporeal histories. On January 14, we'll share our work at a public reading in Tucson Hop Shop's sunny beer garden: a body we have written together.
Join Kati and co-contributor Sarah Viren as they help launch Beautiful Flesh: A Body of Essays at Tucson's Antigone Books. Culled from some of the nation's best literary journals, each essay in the anthology explores a different body part.
Join Kati as she reads alongside her students from the class "Disorienting the Essay" at the University of Arizona Poetry Center's Spring Classes and Workshop Reading.
Join Kati at the University of Arizona MFA Program's yearly Alumni WIP-- an event that honors the poetry and prose Works-in-Progress of badass local alumni.
Listen to Kati and other contributors read from the essays they contributed to How We Speak To One Another, which explores the essay as conversation, giving context to a genre and deepening the flexibility and vitality of its many forms.
"If you can't talk about something, you can't think about something," writer Eula Biss told Krista Tippett. Join me in late February, as alumni of my classes-- writers of sex, illness, and trauma-- read together for the first time on the patio at Tucson Hop Shop.
Come say hi as I sign copies of the anthology How We Speak To One Another at Coffee House Press's AWP booth!
