I CAN CHANGE: Heavy Edit Reading and show

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Upon hearing Kerouac's assertion that he didn't need to edit his own work, Truman Capote famously snapped, "That's not writing, that's typing." Creating requires analysis, criticism, and change, and the zine Heavy Edit celebrates that process. Two issues have come out since November 2015, containing drafts and finished works by over twenty mostly-local authors and artists. When the unfinished works and finished products are side-by-side, the meticulousness and subtlety with which they evolve is evident.
I Can Change is a reading and showcase of that work, and will mark the release of the third and final issue of the zine. Established and published authors including Ellen Welcker, Kris Dinnison, and Fitz will read alongside younger contributors who are just beginning to establish themselves in the Spokane arts scene. Artwork contained in the zine will be displayed, as well as the work of artists who have developed their pieces and ideas further since publication. Don't miss this opportunity to hear talented and hard-working artists share their experiences and processes, and add perspective to the polished perfection of their finished work.

Issues one and two of Heavy Edit are available for purchase at Auntie's Bookstore, for checkout from the Spark Center library, and will be available at I Can Change. See them online at ceilanhuntergreen.com/heavy-edit.
