Tonight was surreal.
Great turnout. Lots of new faces. Powerful readings and such a strong sense of community. I hope the high I'm feeling from this event never goes away.
Everybody Bleeds took care of the door charge and period drive for the event. Bull Run Distillery and Portland Bloody Mary Mix sponsored the event and allowed for there to be an open bar with fun anti-stigma drinks.
Kat Attack Photography and All Bad Days offered up really cool prizes to be raffled off.
Zig Zag Patch Co offered Nasty! embroidery at the event.
Live readings from Diana Kirk, Tara Dublin, Cervante Pope, Eleanor Rose, and Jennifer Robin rocked the house and brought on all the feels (so beautiful to see people affected by hearing their stories and talking to the writers about how much their words moved them. I will forever be happy to see these writers gain new fans).
The love and support in the room felt unreal. Thank you to everyone who showed up and made us feel right at home. We love you.
