READINGS & APPEARANCES
Portland, Oregon offers many opportunities to meet and listen to national and local poets and writers. In 2021 we are still conducting virtual readings and I had the pleasure of being a featured reader with "Head for the Hills" poetry series.
In 2019, during the AWP conference I joined the Finishing Line Press booth to sign copies of my chapbook, and later that evening I was the emcee for the Tupelo Press Offsite.(They graciously included me in the reading).
I love this book - and am a much better poet because of the feedback Mark Doty gave me during our workshops at the Tupelo Press Writers Conference in Truchas, NM.
Thank you, Mark!
Born in California in 1945 and acknowledged as one of the most original voices in the contemporary landscape, Kay Ryan is the author of several books of poetry. In "The Best of It" Ryan presents a wonderful
retrospective of her previously published work, as well as new poems
THE WRITING LIFE
I often return to this treasure to find my center and feel inspired.
As a workshop leader at this year's San Miguel Writers Confernce, Dinty Moore was terrific!
(And a fierce karaoke singer!).
Thanks for your wisdom.
