Presented by The Fisher Cats - Kate Hopper, Ann Kempke, Katharine Malaga, Debra Palmquist, Heidi Fettig Parton, Joy Riggs, Krista Westendorp
Fisher Cats is a collective of thirty women writers who have studied with Minneapolis author, editor, and teacher Kate Hopper, through Kate’s Motherhood and Words classes or through her writing retreats. Many of the Fisher Cats have published essays they wrote based off Kate’s prodigious prompts, which often involve making a list, picking a scene with the most energy, and describing it in as much detail as possible. The result is writing that’s fierce, tender, occasionally funny, and always honest. Kate and six Fisher Cats will each read a short personal essay in today’s program.
