Firecracker is intended to bridge Minnesota’s outstanding literary and music communities, as well as to foster emerging and established artistic talent. The project, organized by the award-winning Rain Taxi Review of Books, will be based out of The Cedar. Any time between the start of the event at noon until approximately 6pm, writers of all experience levels can swing by and work with veteran editors from top-notch literary organizations to develop fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, or comic art. The writing will be truly spontaneous: all entries will be based around a theme, announced at noon that day. Although contributors will have the most to gain by showing up during the collaborative six-hour workshop at The Cedar, writers from across Minnesota will be able to make submissions to the journal electronically and editors will respond in real time with edit memos.
