Hike & Write With Me at Cama Beach State Park, July 20, 2014

"Hike & Write with the Poet Laureate" begins July 20 at Cama Beach State Park.
“Hike & Write with the Poet Laureate” begins July 20 at Cama Beach State Park.

Grab your notebook, daypack* and Discover Pass and meet me at Cama Beach State Park at 1p on July 20 for “Hike & Write with the Poet Laureate.”

I’m kicking off a brand new part of my work as your Washington State Poet Laureate, combining two of my great loves: writing and hiking.

We’ll meet at 1pm on Sunday, July 20 at the Cama Beach State Park Welcome Center for a brief conversation about poetry, take a short (less than 2 miles) hike on one of the park’s trails, then stop to do some writing together. The event will wrap up by 3p. After that, of course, I hope you’ll continue hiking or writing as the landscape and your mood inspire you.

This is a free program, and there’s no need to register in advance — you just need to be sure your vehicle has a Discover Pass.

Find directions to Cama Beach here.

*Your daypack should include water, snacks and extra layers of clothing, including a rain jacket. And don’t forget that notebook and pen!

The next Hike & Write event will be  Sunday, August 10 at 1p at Deception Pass State Park on Whidbey Island.
