Alanna helps establish branding for individual programs, manage social media, and create much of the organization’s print and digital collateral. She believes art is integral to economic and social justice, and is a member of Literary Arts’ Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion workgroup. Her interest in this work comes from personal experience and was deepened through her involvement with nonprofit arts organizations like the Leeway Foundation and Blackstar Film Festival. She is a speculative fiction writer, multidisciplinary visual artist, and alumni of the Clarion Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Workshop and Tin House Summer Writers Workshop. Her fiction has appeared in Nightmare Magazine.
Our events, classes, and seminars bring the community together to hear, learn, and discuss the most compelling issues and ideas of our day. We hope you will join us in our downtown Literary Arts space, online, and at partnering venues across Portland and Oregon.
