At this event, local writer Ann Pancake will give a craft talk titled “Throb and Hum, A Story’s Song: Writing from Hearing Rather Than Thinking,” which addresses many fabulous questions. How does prose with music move a reader in ways prose with just a little cannot? What kinds of listening might a prose writer cultivate on her way to making stories and essays from throb and hum? What are the dangers and the pleasures of writing out of your ear and your body instead of your head?

Ann Pancake’s most recent book is Me and My Daddy Listen to Bob Marley (Counterpoint 2015) and was a finalist for the 2016 Washington State Book Award. Her first novel, Strange As This Weather Has Been (Counterpoint), was one of Kirkus Review’s Top Ten Fiction Books of the year, won the 2007 Weatherford Prize, and was a finalist for the 2008 Orion Book Award and the 2008 Washington State Book Award. Her collection of short stories, Given Ground (University Press of New England) won the Bakeless award, and she has also received a Whiting Award, an NEA grant, and a Pushcart Prize. In 2016, she was the first recipient of the Barry Lopez Visiting Writer in Ethics and the Community Fellowship. Fiction and essays have appeared in journals and anthologies like Orion, The Georgia Review, Poets and Writers, and New Stories from the South, the Year’s Best. She earned her BA from West Virginia University and her PHD from the University of Washington, and she teaches in the MFA program at Pacific Lutheran University.
