Support the Tuscaloosa Community at Other Words

Writers from Slash Pine Press read their work in support of the victims of the April 27 storm in Tuscaloosa, in which an EF4 tornado 3/4 of a mile wide cut a 5.9 mile swath through the city. Thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed, schools and city services were flattened, and the city's tree canopy was torn out. Donations for Temporary Emergency Services, Tuscaloosa's central agency for tornado relief, will be accepted. Slash Pine Press is part of the Department of English at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa; the press publishes two chapbooks per year, stages a variety of creative writing events, including the Poetry Hike and the Slash Pine Writers Festival, and engages in undergraduate writers exchanges with universities and colleges in the south and midwest.
