March 31: Poetry reading at Redmond Association of Spoken Word at 7 pm.
April 8: Poetry reading at Seattle Public Library for launch of I Sing the Salmon Home: Poems from Washington State at 2 pm.
My poetry has appeared in 32 Poems, Pacifica Literary Review, DIAGRAM, Salamander, House Mountain Review, Psaltery & Lyre, Pidgeonholes, The Threepenny Review, Seneca Review, Yale Review, Poetry Northwest, Mud Season Review, Pontoon Poetry, Tahoma Literary Review, Poetry Daily, and Boxcar Poetry Review. I’ve received the Glascock Poetry Prize and a Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg poetry prize.
My first novel, which I worked on as a Made at Hugo fellow at Hugo House in Seattle, was longlisted (as a manuscript) for the Caledonia Novel Award. I received support for work on the novel from the Elizabeth George Foundation, Artist Trust, Willapa Bay AiR, Marble House Project and the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology.
I’ve also collaborated with composer Christina Whitten Thomas on a project premiered by Seattle choir The Esoterics. My translations of the wonderful Mexican poet Gabriel Zaid have been featured in The Selected Poetry of Gabriel Zaid (Paul Dry Books), as well as in Poetry International and Spolia.
