Last Tuesday we launched the 2017 Sequoia House Chapbook Prize at The Shop at Flywheel Press’s Literally event. The event, held, I believe, roughly each month, had a featured reader, Alex Peterson, who read some of his short fiction, and an open mic for others to present work. I would like to offer my gratitude to all the other readers and speakers.
I can report that the announcement of the prize was warmly received by the folks at The Shop at Flywheel Press. The Shop at Flywheel press is a wonderful venue in San Mateo helping to bring an oasis of culture-creation to the mid-peninsula. They hold regular events for the public, such as their Make-N-Mingle and First Friday events, as well as offering art classes; there is a gallery upstairs, they have a few letter presses; and they can be booked for parties and other events. They also very kindly offered themselves as a potential venue for a public reading of the Sequoia House Chapbook Prize winner.
Thanks again to everyone at the event! Here’s to more in the future!
