King Shot Press Housewarming Party

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.

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).
