Official live events:
– Pop-up midday readings post-Thanksgiving at the Fernie Brae gallery in Portland, OR
– words between: typewriter collaborative poetic creation, hosted during Full Moon Gathering Dec.19 at CoSM NY
Plus recently, I did some writing here:
Metro Diner, NYC
Relic Gallery, Albuquerque
In this delightful deep forest library, I shared snippet readings from Bones of Starlight with people closely inhabiting a connected and intimate setting. Beyond the library, people shared beautiful art, delicious food, and great music. It was a pleasure to be a part of this grand meeting at a special time.
Friends and colleagues, may you ever prosper. I will consider availability for your library-warmings. Try it, just one breathing author. Or more, with any others. Pick your nearest.

CREATIVE COMMONS GLOBAL SUMMIT 2019 – LISBON
I am one of the presenters at the Creators of the Commons Lightning Talks session for this year’s Creative Commons Global Summit in Lisbon, Portugal.
The focus of my 15-minute talk is as follows:
CC Profiles in Arts & Entertainment Frontiers – How are license holders innovating the usage of Creative Commons rights in commercial cultural fields where they are not in wide usage? Science fiction fantasy author Eva L. Elasigue will discuss her use of CC in the realm of book and story publishing, from internet serialization, platform partnership, artistic collaboration, to print products. She will also bring word of other creative project innovators from the science fiction fantasy media genre and beyond.
I am deeply honored to be a scholarship recipient in order to attend this meeting, which will also be my first visit to Portugal. Thankful for this recognition by the creative rights movement I’ve loved since its inception, that is designing copyrights that work the way I thought they already did in the innocence of my youth.
GREAT AMERICAN DINER
This swanky West Seattle diner has an open mic hosted by musician and friend Alan Sobel, and this happened to be along my way to Norwescon. I took a spot on the mic for a short book reading, making this the first time I’ve played to a diner (though Cafe Racer for Two-Hour Transport is close). To hardly any interruption and for a sale, it was a fine stop.
Excellent discussions and fabulous times. It is so satisfying being a creative intellectual playtime wonderland host & participant. Many topics enjoyably covered, and plenty of new interest in Bones of Starlight! Welcome. Picture details in captions.
