Michelle Peñaloza will be reading selections from her her chapbook-in-progress, landscape/heartbreak, a literary cartography of heartbreak in Seattle. Field Guides in hand, Peñaloza will encourage attendees to then break off into small groups to explore sites around Seattle included in the project.

Her poetry has appeared most recently in TriQuarterly, Hobart, The Weekly Rumpus, Hyphen, and INCH.
