Erin Rose Belair

Erin Rose Belair is a writer through and through, from the coffee to the grave. Less as a vocation and more as a veneration. Erin Rose is a multi-genre writer who explores the boundaries of her craft. She received her MFA in fiction in 2010 here at Boise State at which time she wrote Vinegar, her first collection of short stories. Stories from this collection have been widely published and won awards from notable literary journals including Glimmer Train and Narrative Magazine.

She recently finished writing her first novel, The Only Road Home, and is a signed artist at Folio Agency in NYC. Her lyrical essay collection, The Blue Years, will be out this summer.


Katie Fuller

Katie Fuller is a poet from Maine. She is the author of two chapbooks, Valve and The Greenwood Cemetery. Poems are forthcoming in the journal Bone Bouquet. She teaches writing at Boise State and The Cabin.


The series will take place in our Meditation Garden and the shady, expansive green area that surrounds it. At this time, we will not have vendors at this event. Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and non-alcoholic beverages.

*** Please help us keep the garden clean by packing in and packing out your picnic!

 Attendance will be limited to these events, which will very easily allow artists and attendees 6′ – 10′ between themselves and others. Please be mindful of other guests and practice social-distancing at all times. Face masks are required for your safety and the safety of others. All PA and event equipment will be sanitized regularly.
