Now with more

On Sunday, November 20, Portuguese Artists Colony now offers more. More live nude girls, more cleaning power, more skinned frogs and dancing soldiers, more conjugal visits, more all-night, twenty-four-hour protests, more tear gas, more than you ordered, more than you can choke down, more than any of us could have dreamed.

We're Americans, baby, we want more, and Portuguese Artists Colony is here to give it to you.

Featuring guest readers:

Ethel Rohan is the author of Hard to Say, PANK, 2011 and Cut Through the Bone, Dark Sky Books, 2010, the latter named a 2010 Notable Story Collection by The Story Prize. Her work has or will appear in BULL Fiction, The Good Men Project, The Chattahoochee Review, Los Angeles Review, and Potomac Review, among many others. She earned her MFA in fiction from Mills College, California. Raised in Dublin, Ireland, Ethel Rohan is now a resident of San Francisco, California.

Kelly Cressio-Moeller
’s work has appeared or is forthcoming in the following poetry journals: Rattle, Southern Humanities Review, Pearl, Melusine, the Aurorean, Switched-on Gutenberg, Pirene’s Fountain, and The Newport Review among others. She shares her deeply caffeinated life with her German husband, increasingly taller sons, and their opinionated basset hound. She has a weakness for fountain pens & purple ink. And like everyone else on the planet, she is working on a book.

Nora Boxer returns after her thrilling victory in September's live writing with her finished piece, inspired by the prompt, "His hands were in the sink."

Live music from Passenger & Pilot!

Live writing:
Vote on a prompt as you enter the show, and four writers will write on the winning topic while you watch them sweat, swear, and get inspired. Each writer will read what he/she wrote, and you get to vote on which piece you'd like to see developed into a finished story/poem/rant to be read at the next PAC performance. The live writing gets more exciting with every show. Place your bets!
