We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Attic Institute: FALL Online: Intro to Flash Nonfiction w Brian Benson

September 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$215 – $242
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Flash nonfiction, simply put, is true-to-life writing defined by extreme compression: it’s saying what you’ve got to say using as few words, and as much beauty, as possible. An endlessly accessible, playful, potent form, flash nonfiction is evermore popular; from Brevity to BarrenThe Forge to The Sun, legions of journals are eager to publish great flash.

In this prompt-driven workshop, we’ll read short nonfiction by master writers, including Ross Gay, Natalie Lima, Ira Sukrungruang, Roxane Gay, Jerald Walker, Ruth Ozeki, and many more; we’ll talk about what stories are suited for flash, how to tell them well, and where to publish them; and most of all, we’ll write, and write, and write, via in-class exercises and take-home prompts. Students will leave the class with reams of new writing and ideas for where to publish.
