NEW IN 2018! WORDS IN ACTION THIRD THURSDAY DROP-IN

TOPIC: The Environment

The Cabin is proud to offer a second free monthly writing drop-in! On the third Thursday of each month, WORDS IN ACTION will pair local activists and a Cabin teaching-writer to write, think, and talk about social justice issues. The community activist will talk about the role of writing in their work for the first half. During the second half, a Cabin teaching-writer will lead participants in a creative writing prompt in dialogue with the activist’s areas of interest.

Free and open to the public!

On March 15th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM here at The Cabin with environmental activist Jason Pretty Boy and Cabin teaching-writer and poet Catherine Kyle 

Jason Pretty Boy grew up along the banks of the Raft River in Southern Idaho.  He is Lakota  (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) but has called Idaho his home on and off for close to 30 years.  He has a BS in Political Science from Boise State University.  He has worked in non-profits for most of his professional life, from Tribal Education to Environmental Justice.  He doesn’t really consider himself an activist but more of a storyteller who happened to be in the wrong places at the right times.

Catherine Kyle is the author of the poetry collection Parallel (Another New Calligraphy, 2017), the poetry chapbooks Flotsam (Etched Press, 2015) and Gamer: A Role-Playing Poem (dancing girl press, 2015), and the hybrid-genre collection Feral Domesticity (Robocup Press, 2014). She teaches literature at the College of Western Idaho and writes the monthly creative nonfiction column “Save Point” for Cartridge Lit. Her website is www.catherinebaileykyle.com.
