Phinney-Books-Exterior

We hope you can make it out January 21, 7pm for the Dock Street Salon at Phinney Books! We’re excited to collaborate with the University of Washington and host a few MFA candidates. Our salon is growing, gaining some nice steam. Come be apart of it, heck, former mayor Mike McGinn showed up last month! As always some free wine, and beer from local brewery Ruebens. Hope to see you there!

Here’s the line up:

Daniel J Cecil is a writer and editor living in Seattle. His fiction and non-fiction work have appeared in The Heavy Feather Review, HTML Giant, Bookslut, The Review Review, Knee Jerk, The Plant, and The Pavilion. When not writing, Daniel acts as a fiction editor for Versal, the literary & arts journal from Amsterdam. Daniel is currently an MFA candidate in fiction at the University of Washington, where he also teaches. 

Kim Halstead came from Indiana but would prefer if you didn’t ask her about it. She won a Halloween short story contest in 7th grade and realized that there was something she was good at, which, sadly, would probably never make enough money to allow her to feed herself.  You can find her around by following the scent of coffee and the sound of desperate typing.

Cameron Quan Louie is from Tucson, Arizona. In 2011, Cameron won the Hattie-Lockett Poetry Award from the University of Arizona, and his work has appeared in Persona, Rainy Day, and a morse-code inspired chapbook called Dit Dah. Cameron currently teaches in the English department at UW.
