book coverVery pleased to have received my copy of For Love of Orcas, an anthology edited by Andrew Shattuck McBride and Jill McCabe Johnson and published by Wandering Aengus Press. Along with my poem, “Coffee shop, watershed, orca,” the book is a collection of poetry and prose addressing the plight of the southern resident orca whales. Book sales benefit the SeaDoc Society and I am honored to have my work included.

I have been writing…

In fact, I have been writing about a scarecrow, and here’s the poem, published in Issue 4 of Rockvale Review, with my gratitude to Sandy Coomer and the RR team.

the creatures are stirring!


Can you hear the yowls and yaps, the squeals and chirps? That growling sound, the one that makes you clutch one another in your tent… that’s the sound of SpeakEasy 22: Animal Beast Creature.

The SpeakEasy poetry series returns to Bellingham on Saturday, October 20, 2018, as poets Jennifer Bullis, Elizabeth J. Colen, Paul Hunter, Jeffrey Morgan, Bethany Reid, Kimberly Roe, Ely Shipley, and Sheila Sondik explore the power of animals — persona, myth, spirit, science, and a deep wildness. The program is free and begins at 7:00pm in the Encore Room of the Mount Baker Theatre. Village Books will be on hand to sell the poets’ books. Event info on Facebook.

SpeakEasy is an occasional poetry series that emphasizes themed, audience-friendly presentations of quality poetry by Cascadia-region writers. It is produced in Bellingham, Washington, by Luther Allen, author of The View from Lummi Island, and J.I. (Judy) Kleinberg.

Come experience the animal magnetism.

In The News

Note: this Last Call is not to be confused with the newly published (but not yet received) Last Call edition of The Raven Chronicles. More on that when it arrives.

this evening in Bellingham!

Please join us this evening at the Mount Baker Theatre Encore Room where Poetry Postcards: a panel and conversation will be a lively exploration of the poetry and art of postcards. We have a terrific panel of poets, artists, educators, and avid fans of the postcard, including Tallie Jones, Nancy Pagh, Eugenia Hepworth Petty, Ina Roy, Joanna Thomas, and moderator Paul Nelson.

There will be lots of images, poems, and conversation about spontaneous poetics and how postcards fit into our text/social media/email/hashtag lifestyle, plus a couple of the panelists will offer prompts or exercises.

The event is also a book launch for 56 Days of August, the anthology of the 2016 August Poetry Postcard Fest.

ALSO, we are doing a free POSTCARD EXCHANGE. Bring unused postcards (commercial or homemade) and take a new card home for every one you bring.

The entire event is free (except for book sales, which are encouraged) and should be a lot of fun. Please join us and bring your art/poetry pals!
