This monthís featured author, Joel Wayne, is a Pendleton High School grad who has gone on to have great success in his creative pursuits. He is a freelance writer and director in Boise, ID making his living, primarily, in marketing and advertising. His work has appeared in Adpulp, apt, The Chattahoochee Review, Glassworks, and The Moth and a nonfiction piece was featured as the cover story on Salon. His short films have screened at the Sun Valley and Local Sightings Film Festivals,


Sit back and just listen or bring your own 3-5 minute piece to share during Open Mike.

On View Through July 29
