The Line Has Shattered Screening (Bothell)

From Jared Leising:

The Line Has ShatteredDuring our second week of Innovative Cascadia Poetry, there will be another opportunity for people in the Seattle-area who are taking the course to meet in person.

We will be screening and discussing the film The Line Has Shattered at Cascadia College between 11-12:45 on Thursday, February 4th, and you are all welcome to attend in person.  The screening will be held in the CC1 building, room 011 (lower level).

Here’s a page with directions to the college and a map of the campus: http://www.cascadia.edu/discover/visitors/default.aspx (Links to an external site.).

Parking is not easy at 11 am, so please plan to arrive early and see costs and instructions here:http://www.cascadia.edu/discover/visitors/default.aspx (Links to an external site.).

Note: I’ve heard The Line Has Shattered will be available through Vimeo starting in Feb. for a pay-per-view cost.  When I have a link for that, I will share it with the class.

Call for Writing – COG

COGDear Paul Nelson:

What do Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler), A. Van Jordan, Gish Jen, Snap Judgment host Glynn Washington, Soma Mei Sheng Frazier, Donna Steiner, Opal Palmer Adisa, Molly Giles, Tomas Moniz, Ron Austin, Ajuan Mance, Paul S. Flores, Arisa White, Jendi Steiner, Calder Marchman and our close-knit editorial staff of students from the Bay Area’s Cogswell Polytechnical College have in common? Issue 1 of COG.

Get your story or poem adapted as an animated short, 2D animation, graphic novel or interpretive illustration series. Earn a blurbs from Daniel Handler or A. Van Jordan. And if you’re more of a stage storyteller than a page storyteller, find your audience by telling your tale in our audio broadcast, Cogitate, which just announced a new, oncoming host: Irene Noguchi, Producer of KQED’s nationally-beloved talk show, “Forum.”

We’ve found that the writers we stalk in Poets & Writers’ directory send in a higher caliber of work than those we identify from other literary groups – maybe because PW.org vets its community of authors with fairly strict requirements. And we heart reading good writing – so please consider submitting your work.

We’re new, but we hit hard and shout our contributors’ names from the mountaintops. Check us out at www.cogzine.com.

Best,
Aimee Pitcher, Cog Staff Editor
