Getting Ready for October Visit to the Pacific Northwest

Between October 15th and 22nd, I will be on tour in the Pacific Northwest. I have been invited to attend and present at the Seabeck Haiku Getaway:

on the Washington state coast, where I will be reading my haiku and related genres, leading a writing workshop, giving a talk on the relationship between haibun (a Japanese genre, combining prose and haiku) and narrative poetry, and helping to lead a renku (linked-poem) session.

In addition, I will be a guest reader the night of October 15th at Soulfood Books in Redmond, Washington (in the Seattle area):

and then travel down to Portland, Oregon, for a few days, where I will participate in a reading with Maggie Chula and Penelope Scambly Schott the night of October 20th at the Looking Glass Bookstore in Portland:

I’m really looking forward to this trip and am grateful to Michael Dylan Welch for inviting me to Seabec and arranging the Soulfood Books reading, and to Maggie Chula for hosting me in Portland and arranging our reading together at Looking  Glass bookstore. Exciting times!
