photography by Dean DavisIn April 2018, at the wonderful Inland Poetry Prowl in Ellensburg, Washington, the photographer Dean Davis quietly set up shop and proceeded to photograph and record many of the poets in attendance. Now you can see the results of this ambitious, unheralded, and unpaid project at Pictures of Poets. Click on ALL POETS and you will see many familiar faces. Mouse over the photos to see the poets’ names. Click on a poet’s photo and you will be taken to a page with a short bio and Davis’s recording of the poet. Here’s an example.

A selection of 12 large-scale prints from this collection will be exhibited at the Burgin Center for the Arts in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, from March 21 through April 14, 2019, and selection of 25 of them will be exhibited at the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture in Spokane, Washington, in fall 2019, dates TBA.


Very pleased to be a panelist at this weekend’s Inland Poetry Prowl in Ellensburg, Washington, joining an impressive roster of poets who will read, rant, and rave between Friday night and Sunday morning.

Ellensburg is compact and charming, situated in central Washington’s rolling wheat country, and replete with late 19th century charm (including, quite wonderfully, a Kleinberg building).

Events are entirely free (well, except for books and food). Please join us!

Come on down!

INLAND POETRY invitation

Sure it’s a few weeks off yet, but that gives you plenty of time to get the Inland Poetry Prowl, aka Baudelaire’s Birthday Bash, on your calendar. Visit Ellensburg, Washington, and drench yourself in poetry on Saturday, April 9, 2016. See the complete lineup of poets, schedule, map, etc., on the Inland Poetry site and watch for updates on Facebook. Hope to see you there!

P.S. Found poetry craft talk, 2:00pm at the Clymer Museum of Art. Spread the word.
