Readings this week: Oct. 4 – 7

Yuri Tozuka
This stunning piece by Yuri Tozuka was the prompt for my new poem “Museum of Lost Birds,” which I’ll read at the Signs of Life reading Oct. 4 for the Facere Jewelry Art Gallery.

Mostly I’m keeping a low profile these days: writing, revising, reading books ranging from Mary Roach’s BONK to Danez Smith’s DON’T CALL US DEAD to Krista Tippett’s BECOMING WISE. But this week I’ll lend my voice to a handful of events — would love to see you there.

  • Oct. 4 at 4p: Signs of Life at City Center conference room. Seattle, WA. Reading poems and prose written in response to jewelry art. Sponsored by Facere Jewelry Art Gallery. Also reading are Catalina Marie Cantu, Bill Carty, Jane C. Hu and many others; several of the jewelry artists will also speak about their work.
  • Oct. 5 at 7p: Reading from the WA129 anthology at Open Books. Fifteen contributors to Tod Marshall’s anthology of Washington poetic voices will perform.
  • Oct. 6 at 5p: Walking the Borderline: A reading of new poems and discussion of the writing process at the Edmonds Library.
  • Oct. 7: “Demystifying the Line Break” at Write on the Sound. Edmonds, WA. SOLD OUT.

  1. I believe that if something is commendable it should be commended. Thus this email. I spoke with you last month during the meet and greet at Write On The Sound. You recommended I read How to Read a Poem by Edward Hirsch. I have purchased a copy, and am slowly working my way through it. Most helpful! Thank you for taking the time to listen and advise. I can already sense a shift in my thinking.
