OSU MFA Meet, mingle, and get messy with the second-year OSU-Cascades MFA Creative Writing students at Second Sunday at the Downtown Bend Library on Sunday, June 12. Pop-up readings and performances will be staged throughout the Library starting at 2:00 p.m.

Emily Carr, Program Director of the Low Residency program at OSU-Cascades, developed the idea of the pop-up event with her students. “The event will be experiential,” says Carr, who encourages her students to think of writing workshops as laboratories and spaces for exploration. For this event Carr says that the students used the scientific method to inform their creative process and built their work based on the idea of a science fair. “Our Pop-Up Fair is equal parts imagination, amateur science and DIY art-making,” she says. During the event Carr hopes that people will learn more about the creative process and engage in conversation with the students. “You can expect to get a hands-on experience of our innovative, holistic approach to growing writers and experiment with your own sense of serious whimsy,” says Carr.

The second-year students featured include Ally Bebbling, Joslyn Kite, Jessica Monday, Brittany von Hoene, Barry Langland, Jay Jackson, Christine Coyne and Joshua Evans.
