Kickstart students write anthology, plan Nov. 3 reading

Seven Kickstart Your Writing students have written an anthology called Journeys to the Edge. The diverse collection of humorous, emotional and thought-provoking essays includes:

  • A funny story about a drug-induced home break-in
  • An emotional description of having an abortion
  •  A Peace Corps memoir about living with Fijians known for their history of cannibalism.

All the writers chose to write about a personal journey that took them to the edge of their world, whether literally or figuratively, physically or emotionally. The writers — Jamie Caulley, Kathy Eaton, Jen Laverdure, Susan MacMillan, Mark Robben, Sarah Retzer and June Selis — will read from the collection on Wednesday, November 3, 7 p.m. at St. Johns Booksellers, 8622 N. Lombard St., Portland, Oregon. After the reading, the writers will be available to answer questions.
