July 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come celebrate the official release of Nathan Wade Carter’s stunning and honest new chapbook, ROYGBIV, from Ursus Americanus Press. We have been hard at work on this little thing for a minute now and are ecstatic about releasing it into the world. The event is free, just bring your bodies and a beverage of your choice.

Jenna Marie Fletcher is a writer, talker and chronic-dabbler based out of Portland, OR. She’s mostly interested in one-hit wonders (and how to make them), vaguely romantic experiences, sharp things, and telling a good story. Her work circles around the messy intersections of race, queerness, and chronic illness. Poetry, essays and weird art can be found all over the internet and in print; many different places all with the same aim – to try to take up space and to take up space by trying.
