Incongruity and the Spooky

Last Bolton meeting at Dadisman/Stalnaker, our writers created experimental nonfiction essays about the smells of our childhood, parts of people we love, freely associated memories, and those snippets of conversation we will never forget. The results were, needless to say, edgy, brilliant, and entertaining!

And we even let the sounds of Debbi's dog, the smell of the barbeque chicken, and the sweet chill of Cold Stone ice cream creep into our senses to unleash on the page.

Hope to see you all this week for dinner and an exploration of spookiness through poetry--what new, weird things in Morgantown, in your dorm room, haunt you? Have you ever been actually scared on Halloween? How do we choose an ending for a poem when our life's endings are so uncertain? Bring your pens and smiles! It's okay to be dark when there's warm food on the table.

See you Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6:00!
