Faculty mentor: Michael Gills
Artist’s Statement: My name is Natalie Colby, I’m a sophomore pursuing a Honor’s Political Science and Sociology degree and I’m a student of Michael Gills’ Novel Writing Workshop. Since Fall 2020, I have been working to write the first draft of my novel, “The Empty Seat in Heaven.” The novel follows a 25-year-old recent divorcee and Mormon who moves to Portland to escape the scary monotony of her life. The excerpt I’m reading is from the first chapter of the novel, as the main character, Marie, makes her way up move up north.
