In our last meeting for 2012, we critted stories from Kris Millering, Cat Rambo, and Emily Skaftun. In attendance were Liz Argall, Sarah Hirsch, Tod McCoy, Kris Millering, Erik Owomoyela, Cat Rambo, Vicki Saunders, Emily Skaftun, and Eddie Smith.
Here’s a scattering of what was said, but by request I have not attributed the quotes.
- If there are monkeys on a planet, we need to know that immediately because we love monkeys!
- That would really sock it to the tree, so to speak
- Write a different story. Got it.
- I wanted more apple magic.
- I needed more rage on the part of the tree.
Afterwards, we had a joint outing to the theater and saw Geek Out, which included adaptations of “Black Box” by Jennifer Egan; “Instructions: by Neil Gaiman; “The Lifecycle of Software Objects” by Ted Chiang; and “The Unwritten” by Mike Carey, done in collaboration with literature-based music group, The Bushwick Book Club Seattle.
