SATURDAY, JULY 17, 7-8: INDIE PUBLISHING PANEL
Have you ever dreamed of starting your own publishing company, literary journal, or zine? It's not as tough as you might think. Getting into the publishing biz is easier than ever. Join us as the people behind REPLACEMENT PRESS and PAPER DARTS tell you how they got their ventures off the ground, and field your questions about indie publishing, writing, and anything else you want to ask about.
SATURDAY, JULY 17, 8-10: FLASH FICTION IMPROV
Bringing this week of artistic and literary hijinks to a close is an event unlike any we've attempted before: an improv literary contest! A handful of Twin Cities writers/improv-ers will be given a prompt, then compose a piece of flash fiction on the spot and compete for your laughter and applause. There will also be live music by local band WE BECAME ACTORS.
