Cascadia Poetics LAB logo


I’ve never attempted anything like this before, but have had some potential poetry plaques that were discussed, but plans fell through. This one is going to happen. I am working with Jayne DeHaan of the Rainier Valley Rotary and Sam Hamill to honor one of the best poets to ever call Seattle home, Denise Levertov. The more I look at her work and life, the more I see how she was a very courageous human, espousing a poetics that I would call prophetic as well as a body of work that is world-class. Please consider a contribution to the cause and please consider attending the 4th Cascadia Poetry Festival, Nov 3-6, 2016, with panels, readings and a ritual walk to her grave, as we honor the memory and legacy of Denise Levertov.
