Writers’ Block Live!

Trevor K Allred, Liz Harmer, Shauna Barbosa

Liz Harmer

Mike sits down with novelist Liz Harmer, poet and community organizer Trevor K Allred, and poet Shauna Barbosa to hear the work from their individual projects and discuss the power of audience, politics, the meaning of portals, the meaning of water, the magic of astrology and why fake bluster is important (AND SO MUCH MORE)!

Trevor Kaiser Allred has work published in Boned Stories, Eunoia Review, and Pomona Valley Review, and was a poetry judge for DASH Literary Journal Vol 9. He is the Community Relations Manager at 1888 Center, and is a poet at The dA Center for the Arts.
