  1. Dear Elizabeth, thank you for being such an inspiration during your tenure as Washington State Poet Laureate. I had the opportunity to attend your Poetry for All workshop in Poulsbo last February and I’ve been following you since then. I loved your last Video Prompt and wrote a poem (as part of a blog) in response to it. I hope you like it. I will continue to follow you. Joanna Richey

      Joanna, thanks so much for your message – I really appreciate knowing that the workshop and video prompt were helpful.
