“Excavating poetry”

Whatcom Magazine Fall 2014So pleased to be featured in an article by Cheryl Stritzel McCarthy, “Excavating Poetry,” on pages 38-39 of Whatcom Magazine, Fall 2014. The article includes three previously unpublished found poems.

Whatcom Magazine is available in today’s edition of the Bellingham Herald and on local newsstands over the coming months.

Several examples of my found poems will remain on view at the Firehouse Café, 1314 Harris Avenue in Fairhaven (Bellingham, Washington), until Thursday, September 4, 2014.

2012-02-13 Bellingham Herald
It’s been a poetic couple of days. First, a reading for Whatcom WRITES! from the new publication, Enemies (including my poem, NMEs Everywhere). Then, SpeakEasy – Love Uncensored, a remarkable demonstration of courage and love as nearly 20 couples read love poetry (their own and/or by others) in front of an audience of about 80 people. (We read our Valentine’s Day poems generated from our 2011 Hugo House workshop with Patricia Smith). And today, more poetry, more love, thanks to Dean Kahn and The Bellingham Herald.
