Write to Publish 2020: UPDATE!!!
This year we have partnered with local literary journals Tahoma Literary Review and Clackamas Literary Review. You can hear this year’s winning entry for fiction, “Dead Mall” by J. B. Kish, read by the author at Write to Publish.
Erin Doyle is a social media specialist born and raised in Mahopac, New York. She was inspired to start writing poetry after reading Life on Mars by Tracy K. Smith and has since used the medium to reflect on attachment and heartbreak. An avid art lover, she also enjoys painting, drawing, and sewing. Please connect with her @erindoyl on Instagram or @errind on Twitter to discuss memes and poetry.
Ryan Chin is a dad, writer, fly fisher, and surfer—mostly in that order. He is the creator of Without Rain There Can Be No Rainbows, a multimedia memoir about his time teaching in New Zealand. His second book, The Big Head Diaries, Volume 1, is a story written from the perspective of his yellow lab. He once found a thousand dollars along the Willamette River, located the rightful owners, wrote a story about it, and ended up winning three hundred dollars in a writing contest. Not bad for doing the right thing and writing about it! Writing helps him remember lessons he’s already learned and inspires him to keep learning. He can be found meandering in Portland, Oregon, and beyond, often driving into the middle of nowhere for overnight writing retreats in his truck camper. You can find more about his work at ryanchinauthor.com.
Originally from the Southwest, J. B. Kish moved to Portland, Oregon, in 2012. He is the author of two novels, including A Wall for Teeth and Stingers, a thriller/horror novel that takes place in both Arizona and Oregon. He has the same birthday as Captain Kathryn Janeway, which is a thing he takes very seriously. Probably too seriously. Follow him on Instagram @johnboywrites.
