Announcements from FC Knoll
I'm reading from Ocean's Laughter as part of the Free-Range Poetry Series at the Thurman Street Multnomah County Library (2300 NW Thurman) along with Tom Hogan and Tiel Aisha Ansari. An open mic at starts the evening and we'll be done reading by for the library to close on time at .
Two of my poems, "Darwin's Piano Forte" and "If I Could Come Back" are in the current issue of Written River - A Journal of Eco-Poetics. It's a print journal -- and one of the loveliest I know of in format and photography.
If you've seen Oregon Shakespeare Festival's production of River Bride, you may be interested in my poetic response to this moving play "Late Afternoon Under the Weeping Willow" on ekphrastic.net. Ekphrastic work points to when one creation reacts to another work of art.
I wrote a guest blog for Trish Hopkinson's blog on poetry (a fine resource for poets) on what it means to have waited until after retirement to get serious about poety. https://trishhopkinson.
