Last summer I participated in LitFuse, a first-time poetry gathering in Tieton, Washington, outside of Yakima. It was a fantastic two days of workshops and readings, including the open mic at the closing. It was Sunday afternoon. The sun leaned down into autumn gold, light streaked into the warehouse where we read and listened. You can hear snippets from that reading and catch glimpses from the rest of the weekend in a slideshow, at http://www.mightytieton.com/tieton_arts-humanities.html. And if you watch 'til the end, you'll hear me have the last word.
Thanks to Tieton Arts & Humanities for the scholarship that made my participation possible.
PS Although the photo above makes it look as if Paul Nelson is haranguing his "Organic Poetry" students, it was actually a good workshop.
