Invite to Your Community

The Poet Laureate serves to foster awareness, appreciation, and engagement with poetry throughout our state.  If you’d like me to provide or participate in a poetry or poetry-related event in your community, then please contact me via email:  poet (at) humanities (dot org) or marshall@gonzaga.edu.

In March, I will start traveling the state as part of my project to help Washington writers of all skill levels create poems and to gather those poems as a celebration of the creativity in our state.  Please check the events page for details and please send me a note if you’d like me to visit your community.

      Hi, Susan– well then, you’re in luck! I’m reading at the Bellingham Library as part of “Poetry Night” on April 21; 7:30p.

      Hi, Jeanne – you just missed me at the Bremerton Library! I don’t have a workshop scheduled at the moment in Kitsap County, but you can always find my readings and workshops listed at https://wapoetlaureate.org/events/. I’m sure I’ll be back to Kitsap again soon.

    Oh wow! iam sorry I missed you! But it must not of been the time for me. Anyway I will definitely keep aware of your coming back. I have five acres of gardens that I do and iam always “speaking ” poetry as I feel it and I need to start writing things down. I love it so much! Words are life or death and they bring such vision too. Thanks for responding! Jeanne cronce
