Noisy Water Reading at Lummi Island Library

WPA Cover FINAL for media 300 dpiThis Saturday, poets will descend on the Lummi Island Library as part of Whatcom poetry anthology Noisy Water‘s no-town-left-behind reading series. I’m delighted to read alongside Luther Allen (co-conspirator with JI Kleinberg of this community poetry extravaganza), and my former professors Suzanne Paola and Bruce Beasley, as well as a few other wonderful poets.

Reading starts at 7:30!

Feature at Write Riot, Thursday 12/17

I know almost everyone travels this time of year. Or, if you’re like me, you might find yourself donning pajamas once the sun goes down. (Does it ever come up?) Just in case you’re in Bellingham, and just in case you’ve been feeling like hearing poetry in a golden mead hall might do you some good, you can come to Write Riot, this Thursday, 12/17 at Honey Moon. It starts at 8:30, though if you want to read, come at 8:00.

The talented Jessica Lohafer hosts Write Riot each month. I’ll be featured this time! Maybe I’ll read a trio of deer poems. Maybe a sequence of poems about dark and night, since we’re pre-solstice and steeped in dark and night. Maybe I’ll read a poem, which you’ve never heard before because I just wrote it, about light.

Reading and Bellingham Review Issue 70 Release Party at Honey Moon this Saturday

This Saturday, May 16th, at the Honey Moon in Bellingham, my colleagues and I will read some of our work and celebrate Bellingham Review’s Issue 70 release. I think I’m getting nostalgic about the end of my time at Western Washington University’s MFA program so I’m looking forward to sweet mead and celebration of this culmination. Please come!

Reading with Roberto Ascalon

Roberto Ascalon and I will read at Redmond’s Soul Food Poetry Night on Thursday, February 19th at 7:00 p.m. I promise some circus poems, and Roberto will stun us with whatever he’s got up his sleeves these days, because that’s what he does. I would love you to come! In fact, you could come with your own poems, because this reading series is also an open mic…

Great, see you there!
