STACY BREWSTER is a writer, editor, workshop facilitator and creative supervisor. His short stories, flash fiction and poetry have appeared most recently in The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide, The Madison Review, Redactions and The Santa Fe Literary Review among other journals. His current project is a collection of short stories centering on the American queer experience.
Stacy is the principal behind LAUNCH CREATIVE NW which he opened in 2016 to provide creative supervision to writers of all backgrounds and abilities, helping them expand their creative practice, edit and complete projects, and share their work.
Since 2008 Stacy has run writing workshops for WRITE AROUND PORTLAND, a non-profit that provides free 10-week workshops for those who would not otherwise have access to writing in community with others due to income, disability or other barriers. He has also trained other writing workshop facilitators in collaboration with the NORTHWEST NARRATIVE MEDICINE COLLABORATIVE based out of Oregon Health & Science University.
Stacy is the co-founder of the FULL FRONTAL WRITING COLLECTIVE, a community of poets and writers in Portland, Oregon that meets weekly for prompt-based writing and critique. He is also co-chair of the NW Narrative Medicine Project, a monthly speaker series on the intersection of the arts and health. He lives with his husband and dog in a 1912 farmhouse built from old-growth Oregon timber. He tries not to mind the ghosts in the basement where he writes with an industrial space heater and a small therapy lamp.
