In our most recent Halloween issue, we broke the usual OW template and ran a series of flash-fiction stories submitted to us by writers who took part in There Will Be Words’ Halloween reading. One of the writers who submitted a story, JC Sevcik, is currently the writer in residence at the Kerouac House in College Park. Sevcik, a Seattle-based journalist who writes for the Stranger, UPI and the Daily Dot, has spent the last three months in Orlando working on his craft, and according to the Kerouac House, he’s working on a memoir about his experience in the troubled-teen industry (that is, those hard-core “scared straight” boot camp places that parents send their kids, thinking they’re doing something to help them). Tonight, Sevcik holds a farewell reading at Kerouac House – a residency tradition – before he packs up and heads back to Seattle. Bring a bottle of wine, settle in for a bit at the bungalow that Jack Kerouac once called home, and listen to what Sevcik has worked on since he’s been here.
