THE AIRSTREAM POETRY FESTIVAL is a weekend getaway on October 19-21 to one of the few parks dedicated to the iconic polished aluminum trailers. The festival showcases up-and-coming as well as seasoned local talent and celebrates the PNW literary community. Although "poetry" is in the event name, prose is welcome, as are multi-disciplinary offerings with a literary intersection. 
PUBLISHERS, AUTHORS, AND ARTISTS: If you are interested in presenting at the festival with a workshop, table, or performance, please fill out the proposal form, here. The deadline for program proposals is July 15, 2018. 
Join Melissa FebosChelsea Hodson, and Sophia Shalmiyev on Friday, July 6 at 7 p.m. for readings from their most recent works. Febos' Abandon Me, a Lambda Literary Jeanne Crodova Prize winner for Queer Nonfiction, is a fearlessly vulnerable memoir exploring the bonds of love and the need for connection——with family, lovers, and oneself. In her essay collection Tonight I'm Someone Else, Hodson surfaces her desires to examine what privacy, intimacy, and our bodies are worth in the digital age. She has already garnered rave reviews from the likes of the Chicago Review of Books and NYLON, and author Maggie Nelson. Shalmiyev's lyric memoir, Mother Winter, recounts her childhood emigration to the United States from the Soviet Union, and will be published in January 2019. 
On Saturday, July 21 at 7 p.m. authors Carter McKenzie and Willa Schneberg share their poetry. In the vein of feminist, activist, and poet Muriel Rukeyser, McKenzie and Schneberg explore the role of poetry in both society and our private lives.
McKenzie, whose work appears in numerous journals and anthologies, is an active member of the Springfield-Eugene chapter of SURJ(Showing Up for Racial Justice). Schneberg, a visual artist, curator, and psychotherapist has authored five poetry collections and is the recipient of an Oregon Book Award. 
On Saturday, July 28 at 7 p.m. author Michael McLaughlin will read from his collection of poetry Countless Cinemas, a thoughtful exploration of the difficulty of finding genuine connection in the midst of our everyday struggles. McLaughlin is the author of two novels, three books of poetry, and has worked as the San Luis Obispo County Coordinator for California Poets in the Schools and as an artist-in-residence at Atascadero State Hospital.
