The first issue of Verbatim, our collaborative creative writing journal, is now available for purchase from the library. It features visual art and writing from creatives that have a connection to Owensboro or the Western Kentucky area. A spoken word event was recently held at the library to celebrate the book’s release. This podcast features three stories from that event and an interview Verbatim’s creator, John Beemer. We will release a few more stories from the event next week. Stay tuned. NOTE: A few of these stories contain adult situations & language. Listener discretion is advised.
