Story Houston says
Story|Houston has issues—7 of them to be exact! To celebrate its latest issue, Story|Houston invites you to a night of bookish mischief and boozy fun at East End’s beloved Bohemeo’s. Join us for a reading featuring contributors, past and present, not to mention a special appearance by Lacy M. Johnson, this year’s Annual Fiction and Non-Fiction Contest judge.

Come one, come all, and be merry!

Readers include Lacy M. Johnson, Heather Lefebvre, and Austin Tremblay.

LACY M. JOHNSON is a Houston-based artist, curator, teacher, activist, and author of The Other Side (Tin House, 2014) and Trespasses: A Memoir (University of Iowa Press, 2012), and she is co-creator of the location-based storytelling project the invisible city. She worked as a cashier at Wal-Mart, sold steaks door-to-door, and puppeteered with a traveling children’s museum before earning a PhD from University of Houston’s Creative Writing Program. She has been awarded grants and fellowships from the Houston Arts Alliance, the Sustainable Arts Foundation, Kansas Arts Commission (may it rest in peace), the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, Inprint, and Millay Colony for the Arts. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Tin House, The Racial Imaginary (Fence Books, 2014), Fourth Genre, Literature: The Human Experience (Bedford / St. Martin’s, 2013), Creative Nonfiction, Sentence, TriQuarterly, Gulf Coast and elsewhere. She teaches Interdisciplinary Art at University of Houston.

HEATHER LEFEBVRE is an MFA candidate in fiction at Texas State University, where she serves as a managing editor for Front Porch Journal. She is also the founding editor of Broad!, an online literary journal dedicated to publishing those who identify as female, trans*, or outside the gender binary. Her writing has been published or is forthcoming in Story|Houston, Sycamore Review, The Rumpus Readers' Report, and others. When she's not working on her novel, she likes to bake bread.

Austin’s writing has been featured in Gulf Coast, Smartish Pace, cream city review, Bateau, and other journals. He edits the literary journal Owl Eye Review.
