Sh’Bang Fest! & Poetry Popper

I’m going to Sh’Bang Fest, and will be amongst the audience in the Saloon Chapel tomorrow 9/7 Saturday night from 9pm-close. I’m bringing a limited edition Poetry Popper – with a hand-lettered fabric patch, a signed copier broadsheet of my ribbon-winner poem Stars Framed in Adobe Clay (lettered in my handwriting), and small piece of beach glass picked by me. Compensate or romance me appropriately.

My poetry is signed: e.l.elasigue

I recently had the happy occasion of encountering someone who attended a previous workshop I held at Cascadia Festival in June 2017, namely Mind Maps & Synaesthetic Processes. A jeweler, he let me know he’s utilized some of the methods we exercised. It makes me really glad to know that someone who does something very different than I do can apply things I’ve shared!

Here are photos (by Omar Lopez) from the Live Muse Writing session I held beforehand, where we sited ourselves in different places near various activities to interact with our writing.

My schedule has been announced for Worldcon 75:

Writers and Artists

Wednesday 20:30 – 21:30, 209 (Messukeskus)

How authors interact with illustrators. How SFF covers are created. What visions behind those images.

Ensemble Casts

Thursday 15:00 – 16:00, 203a (Messukeskus)

The Crew, the Band, the League, the Fellowship – what makes a good ensemble cast for a series of novels or a television show? Are these ensembles diverse or stuck in their ways?

Eva L. Elasigue, Gang Tan, Anne-Marie Tuikka
