Khloella has shared her poetry, flash fiction and short fiction for all ten of the annual events. She has also produced a chapbook of her work entitled “Words Out Loud” that is available at Sola Luna Gallery in Toledo, OR.

As an artist, she has explored many mediums: oil painting, watercolors, polymer figurative sculptures, beading and mixed media.

When asked if there is anything she doesn’t do, she replies, “Housework.”
