“Far Out: Exploring the Mind with Science Fiction and Poetry”
At the points where language intersects with the boundaries of comprehension exist two forms of storytelling well suited to exploration – science fiction & poetry. Poetry pushes the capabilities of words themselves, while science fiction reaches for the strangest ideas of our imaginations. Hear more about these two forms linked within this frame of reference by someone who writes both.
“Letting One Art Feed Another”
Keeping one form of creative expression going can be difficult at times. When we think about what inspires and motivates us to create, that can include our favorite media from other sources. We can also count other things we do, and the regularity of their occurrence, as reminders toward continuing our favorite forms of self-realization. This in discussion with someone process-pairing a novel trilogy with an unrelated art series being created live at this event.

“Love Letters from The Magical Typewriter”
Scribe-author Eva L. Elasigue will be at her 1958 Hermes 3000 typewriter (3000 : Thrice-Great Hermes = Hermes TrisMegisTus : The Magical Typewriter) to help you create a unique expression of love and relation, for you to keep or share. She can lend flair to your prose, tone to your poetry, or deliver your precise words on paper – rolled and tied into a scroll with burnt edges (from the heat of your passion?), if desired.
Ancient Greek Concepts of Love:
Eros: sexual passion
Philia: deep friendship, relation, family
Ludus: playful love, kismet, chemistry
Agape: universal love for (the) all
Pragma: enduring commitment
Philautia: love for self

Remembering the Forgotten Through Your Original Storytelling
Many cultures and lineages possessed knowledge which now seems lost forever, leaving descendants to wonder what’s missing from their story. With science fiction fantasy novelist Eva L. Elasigue, explore the possibilities of rediscovering the lost through the use of your own original imagination, unlocking stories within you. Nurture your inner sense of the truth in fiction, folklore, tall tales, and myths – handling your fables and sagas appropriately as separate from heritage (what is directly passed down), yet as fulfilling seeds of personal awakenings. See how your choices in storytelling point to your realizations.
Mar. 29 – Apr. 1
I’m on a dozen panels, to be officially announced with the schedule release, as well as a reading and an autographing!
