What the Water Does: Live Performance and My Short Story Chapbook

wavesI have out a new, wild short story titled “Fetch.” It’s been published as a chapbook by The Furnace Series. (You can buy it here on Etsy. Hand designed by Corinne Manning.) I’ll perform it at The Furnace, an innovative reading series in Seattle that presents four times a year before a live radio audience. (Corinne and Anca are Seattle based writers and the founders of The Furnace. I’m jazzed they invited me to read!)  If you are in town, come on by and join the party.

Here’s the announcement:

The Furnace Reading Series returns on Thursday, May 16 at 7 pm with fiction writer, poet, essayist and Silk Road Review editor Kathlene Postma. Postma will read her rich, riveting story “Fetch” as Portland-area musicians Cayla Davis and Margaret Schimming weave through the telling a “sound and fury” of instruments and voice.

Set along the crackling, icy shore of Lake Superior, drawing on nautical terminology and their definitions, and featuring a mysterious sea beast, “Fetch” tells the haunting story of a car accident and its aftermath.

Postma’s writing has appeared in Zyzzyva, Los Angeles Review, Willow Springs, and other magazines. She teaches fiction writing and literature at Pacific University. As always, the event is free and open to the public.

Thursday, May 16, 7-8 pm
