Our new state poet laureate, Kathleen Flenniken, has created a cool new blog, The Far Field, celebrating the poets and poetry of Washington state. She’s got links to poetry-related events, journals, presses, organizations and resources — it’s fabulous to have all this in one place.
She also posts a new poem every couple of days, and I’m elated that she’s currently featuring my poem “The Girl Who Goes Alone.”
I’ll say more about the book soon, but Kathleen has several readings coming up from her extraordinary new collection, PLUME. See the listing on her site for details. Not to be missed. Trust me on this.
