Banfill-Locke 2014 Reading Series: The Dirty Hands series: writing that gets under your fingernails
I have had the great pleasure of curating the 2014 literary series at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts. Thank you to each and every writer and audience member who came and shared your words and ideas.–Becca
The Dirty Hands reading series featured writers whose work addressed the world with immediacy and sharp edges. We discovered new voices as well as new writing from familiar writers and new ways of reading and presenting poetry, prose, and ideas. These were interactive events; series curator Becca Barniskis invited audience response and facilitated a lively exchange between writers and readers.
