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

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.
