Another Day Song (1980) FRONT and BACK cover

I’m delighted to again participate in the annual Rainier Beach Arts & Crafts Market on December 2, 2023, from 10AM – 3 PM. The address is 6038 S Pilgrim St., in Seattle, in Upper Rainier Beach off Waters. (The Metro’s 7 Prentice bus goes right by.) I relate to my introvert side when I sit at a desk waiting for people to come up and ask me about my books or community work via the Cascadia Poetics Lab.

Besides my presence, and my books and chapbooks, I have to tell you that there is some CRAZY GOOD art and craft work at this event and here are the participating artists:
