Eastern Washington University MFA program invites a slate of powerful writers to Spokane each year — and Spark Central is fortunate enough to host them for public readings!
Danielle Dutton is the author of the books Attempts at a Life, SPRAWL (a finalist for the 2011 Believer Book Award), and Margaret the First, named a best book of the year by The Wall Street Journal, Vox, Lit Hub, St. Louis Magazine, etc., and winner of a 2016 Independent Publishers Book Awards gold medal in historical fiction. She also wrote the texts for Richard Kraft’s collaborative collage project Here Comes Kitty: A Comic Opera. Her writing has appeared in Harper’s, BOMB, Fence, Noon, The Paris Review, The White Review, etc. Dutton is co-founder and editor of the feminist press Dorothy, a publishing project. The press is named for her great aunt, a librarian who drove a bookmobile through the backroads of Southern California, delivering books to rural desert communities. Born and raised in California, Dutton now lives in Missouri with her husband and son. She has taught courses in the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University, at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and in Ithaca College’s Image Text MFA. She is an associate professor at Washington University in St. Louis.
