May 30: Hike & Write

May 30 from 12:30 to 4p on the Iron Horse Trail

The start of summer means it’s time to move the writing outside!

I hope you’ll join me for a short, meditative hike (4 to 5 miles)  and a brief, guided writing session in response to our walk. Bring writing materials, water, snacks and warm layers. We’ll sit on the ground to write, so you may want to bring something to sit on.

Meet at 12:30pm at the Rattlesnake Lake parking lot (exit 32 from I-90) and look for the “Hike & Write with the Poet Laureate” sign. No pre-registration needed, and no previous experience with hiking or writing required.

In case of rain, we’ll write in the Cedar River Watershed Educational Center, which is adjacent to the Rattlesnake Lake parking lot. (We’ll still meet up at the parking lot.)

This program is free, and open to the public. It is sponsored by The Black Dog Arts Coalition, Humanities Washington and ArtsWA.

Reading at the Black Dog Arts Cafe in Snoqualmie at 7p

After the hike, I’ll give a reading at The Black Dog Arts Café in Snoqualmie at 7p. Why not make a day of it? Come out and hike, then have dinner at the Black Dog, followed by poetry and live music.
