When: Thu., July 6, 8-10:30 p.m. 2017
Death Rattle Writers Festival is on a mission to help anyone who wants to slip into their literary groove. It starts with The Spill, a series of live story events at which writers and non-writers alike are encouraged to spill their guts by sharing a five-minute snapshot of their lives. DRWF hopes to "foster a community that leaves no one outside, afraid or alone." The catch is, each story must fit the poem-inspired theme of the evening. For July 6, its "Pocket Knife" by Brandon Ferguson and participants are encouraged to share "stories of great expectations, of high hopes, of best-case-scenarios, whether they are expectations of you or your expectations of others." Read Ferguson's poem on the facebook.com/Spillyourstory event page to prepare, and then get ready to spill at Flying M Coffee Garage in Nampa for a moment in the spotlight.
