Seven Minutes in Heaven at The Lodge of Saint Reborlaro
August 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us at “The Lodge of Saint Reborlaro” for Seven Minutes in Heaven, a reading series of short prose. “The Lodge,” Tulsa Artist Fellow Heyd Fontenot’s takeover project of the Lewis Project Space (20 S. Lewis Ave, Tulsa), is open to all those who crave creative, intellectual and spiritual connection. This incubator, fashioned after artists’ salons, fraternal orders, service organizations and country churches, provides space for casual but meaningful exchange. Seven Minutes in Heaven is thrilled to be a part of the programming!
Featured readers include Katie Moulton, Aaron Whitestar, Christopher Murphy, and Kathryn Savage. Each reader will present a complete story in seven minutes; no excerpts, no poems, no songs—just four fantastic stories.
Katie Moulton is a writer, editor, and music critic from St. Louis. Her work has appeared in or is forthcoming from Catapult, Playboy, Oxford American, Tin House, Consequence of Sound, Bitch, the Village Voice, and more. She is also a 2019 Tulsa Artist Fellow. Her go-to 90s karaoke jams are “Semi-Charmed Kind of Life” and “Flagpole Sitta.”
Aaron is an emerging writer with a BA in English from the University of Oklahoma and, as such, works a day job in tech support while trying to find time and energy to write. He tends to write about heavy subjects in fiction and nonfiction, and has attempted poetry that somehow always turns out to be cheesy and over the top but he can’t stop (and he won’t stop). His specialties include crippling self-doubt, awkward conversations, and unending procrastination.
Christopher Murphy received his MFA from The University of Arkansas and currently teaches creative writing at Northeastern State University. He also reads for Nimrod International Journal. His work has been published at Gulf Coast (online),This Land, The Jellyfish Review, Necessary Fiction, decomP, and The Tulsa Voice, among others.
Kathryn Savage is a recipient of the 2018 Academy of American Poets James Wright Prize. A hybrid writer, her work appears or is forthcoming in American Short Fiction, the Guardian, Poets & Writers, and World Literature Today, among others. Her work has been supported by the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, Minnesota State Arts Board, Millay Colony, Ucross Foundation, Coffee House Press, Weisman Art Museum, and the Gullkistan Center for Creativity in Laugarvatn, Iceland.
This project is supported by Tulsa Artist Fellowship.
With the belief that arts are critical to the advancement of cultural citizenship, Tulsa Artist Fellowship supports both local and national artists while enriching the Tulsa community. Tulsa Artist Fellowship is a George Kaiser Family Foundation initiative.
