Why should you attend?

“Sometimes funny, sometimes frightening, and always full of heart—in Midnight at the Organporium, the everyday and the fantastic conspire to create the authentic.”—Erin Fitzgerald, author

“In these wistful, expansive stories, Pursell holds up a mirror to our lives and relationships. The stories excavate the lives of her narrators with honesty and clear, luminous prose. They are mysterious in the way the best fiction is―their truths echoing long after you turn the page.”―Karen E. Bender, National Book Award finalist

“[The World Doesn’t Require You is a] rich, genre-splicing mix of alternate history, magical realism and satire that interrogates issues of race, sexism and where both meet here in the real world.”—Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times
