If you’re a shy writer, you can submit your work for a performer to read it for you. Submit all excerpts to Duff by noon on Monday, June 7 at Please use “Writers on the Rock” in the subject line.)

The cafe will be open for dinner at 6 p.m. especially for the event, with a variety of food items including its famous pies. Whidbey Pies Cafe also serves wine, beer, espresso and soft drinks in addition to its famous Loganberry wine and Loganberry Prosecco Spritzers.
