A deep dive into memory and writing based on personal experience. An examination of journey and process in all forms. Celebrating the visual, the visceral, and the fleeting. Building story from imagery, language and association. Everything from diaries to travel writing to flash will be explored.


MARIANNE VILLANUEVA is the author of three published collections of short fiction: Ginseng and Other Tales from Manila, Mayor of the Roses, and The Lost Language. She has also written the libretto for a full-length opera, Marife. Her most recent stories can be found in Prairie Schooner, Bellingham Review, Quarterly West, Crab Orchard Review, decomP, and Juked. She blogs as the anthropologist.
