THE SECOND salon & first of the summer!
ft Leigh Nishi-Strattner local poetry legend & international influencer, John Manuel Arias a poetry & prose stunt queen visiting from DC, & Callum Angus, Portland’s newest nature fave fiction professor.
Leigh Nishi-Strattner is a ghost in a girl-shaped body. Currently, she is haunting a pre-war apartment in her hometown of Portland, Oregon. Her latest book Bone Honey, published in 2018 by Club Soft Things, is available for purchase online at www.clubsoftthings.com/shop. The way to her heart is a bouquet of freshly cut white florals tied with a ribbon. (That’s a hint). (@ex_waifu on IG)
JOHN MANUEL ARIAS is a gay, Costa Rican and Uruguayan poet back in Washington, DC after many years. He is a Canto Mundo fellow and his poetry has appeared in several literary magazines, including Sixth Finch, the Journal, and Assaracus: A Journal of Gay Poetry, and his fiction has found homes in Akashic Books, the Acentos Review, and Cardinal Sins Journal. Before DC, he lived in Costa Rica with his grandmother and four ghosts.
Callum Angus is a writer, editor, and teacher living in Portland, OR. He has taught writing at Smith College, UMass Amherst, and at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington.
He is currently working on two book-length projects: a story collection (A Natural History of Transition), and a critical study of natural history museums in contemporary fiction. Cal has worked as a fishmonger, a barista, a reporter in Idaho, and an advocate. These days, you’re likely to find him learning to row on the Willamette River.
