interview!

If you’re a regular in these parts, you may know that Luther Allen and I co-produce a long-running poetry-reading series, SpeakEasy. Normally held before a live audience here in Bellingham, Washington, SpeakEasy has gone Zoom in the last year, and tomorrow, Saturday, April 24, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific, we will host SpeakEasy 28: Homecoming with Rena Priest. Rena, who has just been named Washington State Poet Laureate 2021-2023, will be joined by four of her poetry mentors: James Bertolino, Anita K. Boyle, Nancy Pagh, and Jeanne Yeasting. It should be a wonderful evening of poetry. If you’d like to join us, just send an email to othermindpress AT gmail.com and request the Zoom link.

Meanwhile, in the run-up to tomorrow’s event, Margaret Bikman, the doyenne of all-things-arts-and-entertainment in our region, interviewed Luther and me. The 20-minute interview will stream online today, Friday, April 23, and again tomorrow, Saturday, April 24, in the 10:30am hour Pacific time (i.e., sometime between 10:30 and 11:30 it will air, but we can’t provide a more precise time). To listen in, go to KMRE.org or tune in live in Bellingham at 102.3FM. If you miss it, the interview will eventually be posted on Margaret’s Arts & Entertainment Spotlight podcast page.

Hope you’ll join us for one or more of these events in honor of National Poetry Month.

see you there?
