SummaryThe Ballard Branch welcomes the 368th meeting of the It's About Time Writers' Reading Series, featuring author readings and open mics.
DescriptionThis month’s online presentation features Kait Heacock, Suzanne Edison and Alison Eckels.

Kait Heacock is a book publicist, the Pacific Northwest editor for Joyland, and sits on the Advisory Board for the Mineral School artist’s residency. Her fiction has appeared in Esquire, Joyland, KGB Bar Lit Mag, Portland Review, Tin House, and Vol. 1 Brooklyn. Her nonfiction has appeared in Crab Creek Review, Largehearted Boy, Literary Hub, The Millions, PANK, The Women’s Review of Books, and The Washington Post. Her debut short story collection, Siblings and Other Disappointments, came out in 2016. She is currently at work on a novel about what happens when women turn their anger outwards. She’ll be reading from this novel-in-progress All The Boys Laid Out Like Princes.

Suzanne Edison’s recent chapbook, The Body Lives Its Undoing, was published in 2018. Poetry can be found in: Michigan Quarterly Review; Whale Road Review; Journal of the American Medical Association; The Naugatuck River Review; Scoundrel Time; Mom Egg Review; Persimmon Tree; SWWIM; Intima: A Journal of Narrative Medicine; The Ekphrastic Review, and elsewhere. She lives in Seattle, is a 2019 Hedgebrook alum and teaches at Richard Hugo House.

Alison Eckels is just getting started as a writer sharing her work. In 2018 her first two pieces were published in an anthology compiled by actor and playwright, Elizabeth Coplan: Grief Dialogues: The Book: Stories on Love and Loss by Sixty-One Authors. "Under the Crabapple Trees" is the story of her dad’s death and her awareness of him, spirit and body, right after he died. "Near the End" is a poem that was “gifted” her. It is what she believes, but the writing of the poem simply came.

Between the author readings, open mic time is available for three minutes per person. "Sign-up" is available before the start of the event.
