I’m teaching a couple classes at the Hugo House this summer!
I am thrilled to be a part of this performance, along with Sierra Nelson, Ed Skoog, Kary Wayson, and Katie Ogle!
Anne Carson & Robert Currie in Performance TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2014, 7:30 PM Town Hall Seattle
I’ll be reading a new story at Leave a Message at the Beep Reading curated by the extremely awesome Anastacia Tolbert, featuring a mind-boggling line up of stellar writers: Jourdan Keith, Wendy Call, Natasha Marin, Laura Wachs, Star Murray, Ann Teplik, and Amber Flame at the Twilight Gallery, Saturday, April 26, 7 PM. The last time I read a new story (at WET’s 6-Pack Series), two women got engaged! I can’t wait for what will happen at this reading!
Twilight Gallery is at 4306 SW Alaska Street, Seattle, which is in the West Seattle Junction.
I’m reading some new, apparently rhymey poems Thursday, October 24, at 8 PM
with my fantastic fellow Writers in the Schools, Erin Malone and Matt Gano, at Vermillion Gallery, during a 3-hour bonanza of literary happenings on Seattle’s Capitol Hill and beyond. Crawl by for a drink and a verse!
Rhyme and Reason: Poets Who Teach
Vermillion Gallery, 1508 11th Avenue
Matt Gano, Erin Malone, Rachel Kessler and Jeanine Walker
Poets from Seattle Arts and Lectures’ Writers in the Schools (WITS) program show off rhythm and meter. Matt Gano (Suits for the Swarm), Erin Malone (Hover), Rachel Kessler (TATE, USA Today, The Stranger),and WITS staffer and host Jeanine Walker (Cimarron Review, Web Conjunctions) read.
Tuesday / May 21 / 7:00 PM / Richard Hugo House
I’m finally transitioning from my beloved Kodak carousel tray of slides and have embraced the futuristic technology of the 1990s. Next Tuesday, May 21, I’ll be presenting a PowerPoint slide show that is actually a new story! The Richard Hugo House commissioned an exciting group of writers: Bill Carty, Kathleen Flenniken, Matt Gano, Arlene Kim, Erin Malone, Sierra Nelson, David Schmader, Greg Stump, Anastacia Tolbert (and me!) to create a slide show in the Petcha Kutcha form (20 slides shown for 20 seconds each), except these slide shows won’t be architects talking and it won’t be boring. It will be poets, comedians, comic artists, and story-tellers wielding laser pointers. There will be no horrible family vacation slides. The event is FREE, the bar will be open, and each presentation is 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
Tuesday April 9th / 9:00 AM / Highline Community College / Bldg. 2 2400 S 240th St Des Moines, WA 98198
I’ll be giving a reading of and talk about a new poem cycle dealing with water, drinking fountains, sewers, and toilets, as well as screening a few of the 1960s and ’70s educational films that inspired me.
