Cascadia Poetics LAB logo


AWP is again having their annual convention in Seattle in 2023 and an expected 10,000 writers are headed here. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you!) The Cascadia Poetics Lab will have a booth at the book fair and I am reading at three off-site events and will have a hand in one other one.
