workshop plus: FAT: Feminist Artists Together, A (Wo)Manifesto

A new writing event/workshop I received an email about today. This is a brand new group in the Portland, OR, area - I don't know anything about them. But it looks interesting. Let me know what you think if you attend; I'll be interpreting ZZ Top for part of it and working for the other part.

This is the start of something big. Whether or you know it or not, you are already a part of it. FAT (Feminist Artists Together) is a collective of female artists and feminists (that’s you, boys!) who have joined together to support one another in the making of art. This ultimate goal of this enterprise is to provide outreach and education to young women interested in any and all forms of artistic expression.

Some upcoming FAT events:
FAT Writer’s Festival and Workshop: Focusing on Poetry, Prose and Memoir. Lead by Alexis White (Carleton English ’08, OSU MFA Poetry ’11) Claire Wilson (Smith College BA Women and Gender Studies, Spanish, Marlyhurst MA Divinity ’11) and Sarah O’Mally (Carleton College BA Spanish, University of Portland MAT Education). At the Lotus Seed. Friday 8/27 6-9 pm, Saturday 8/28 11-3 pm, 8/29 6-9 pm. Cost is $10 per day or $25 for the weekend.
