No Fair / Fair
Mar
29
to Mar 30

No Fair / Fair

NO FAIR/FAIR is a 2 day + 1 night literary festival celebrating small independent presses that will take place alongside the 2019 AWP Conference in Portland, OR. The book fair will be held from 12-6p on Friday and Saturday at the Bakery Building and will feature 25 small presses. The reading on Friday night will feature readings from over 60 poets, and will be hosted at two venues simultaneously, the Bakery Building and our very own Outlet PDX. The venues are across the street from each other in a neighborhood full of bars and restaurants, and only one mile east from the conference center.

NF/F is not anti-AWP. Our goal is to offer an affordable alternative for small presses that would like to participate in the conference, but don’t quite have the budget to make it happen. Some of our participating presses are also tabling officially at the conference.

For additional information about NF/F, and to access the schedule of readers, visit nofairfair.com

Erasure Workshop with Zachary Schomburg

This 3 hour session will introduce you to the poetic form of Erasure, which is the practice of erasing words from an existing text to generate new poetry / visual art. Together, we'll look at published examples of erasure, and discuss what might make our own erasures successful. Before we meet, I'll assign a brief reading which will we use to center our discussion. I'll also provide materials for erasure, including books, random prose texts, white-out, scissors, glue, markers, etc. If you already have a text you'd like to erase, please feel free to bring it along. At the end of the session, we will all be invited to share our new erasure work with the group. All are welcome. No poetry or erasure experience is necessary. 

Workshop fee is $25 Register HERE! Or email me to arrange a direct payment. 

Zachary Schomburg is a poet, novelist, illustrator, teacher, and the publisher and editor of Octopus Books. He lives in Portland, OR.

Forever a Rough Draft

Forever a Rough Draft

Our workshop is for anyone who wants to deepen their connection to themselves, their body, and creative process through guided meditation, somatic writing, and blind contour self portraiture. Your body is a soft machine, collection 37.2 trillion cells, a wild, sacred, living creature, and the universe performing itself—but what does that mean to you? Together we will explore what it means to have a body by unpacking what limits us through collective breathing and holding space for radical tenderness. We will spend the duration of the workshop alternating between gentle body scans, blind contour self portraiture, writing a personal manifesto, and voluntary discussion. The outcome of the workshop is to provide anyone the tremendously useful therapeutic tools of somatic writing, breathwork, and self portraiture to further their personal and creative growth. No experience is needed, just the desire to show up for yourself and connect both personally and collectively.

REGISTER HERE!

Attendees will receive a workbook, letterpress print, and a coupon code for the OBIYB shop/online courses.

Lead by Caitlin Metz and Victoria Emanuela of On Being in Your Body

Poetry Workshop with Zachary Schomburg

Come join Zachary Schomburg this spring at Outlet for a six week Poetry workshop.

This will be a generative poetry workshop for poets at all levels.

The participants will spend the beginning of the following week's workshop discussing your experiences with the assignment.

The workshop will be capped at 6 people, so everyone will get about 20 minutes of focused group discussion of their own new work at each meeting. The class will meet once per week for 6 total weeks starting on July 18th and meeting every Wednesday from 5:30 to 8:30. 

$200 total per person for the 6 weeks.
