KQED ARTS -- Celebrate the latest issue of San Francisco State’s venerable literary journal Fourteen Hills. Expect a host of experimental, genre-bending and wholly original writing, like this excerpt from Patrick Milian’s nonfiction piece “Eep,” in the latest issue. “Yesterday I sat next to a woman who calmly, though diligently, wrote in her notebook without looking up for thirty minutes. She gently tore the pages out, folded them, and put them in the trash can before leaving. Of course I pulled the pages out. She had written “Sense of self Sense of self Sense of self Sense of self,” etc. She and I are pursuing similar endeavors. You and I are pursuing similar endeavors.” Featured readers and contributors include Oakland poet Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet, Raina J. Leon, Dave Martin, Daniel Riddle Rodriguez, Ashley Nelson Levy and Miah Jeffra. The event will begin with film projections by local artist Paul Clipson.
