Join us for an afternoon discussion centered on the power of poetry and its place in the world. Each poet brings a unique perspective and vast experience to the table, and every year we are stunned at the magic that takes place when five poets sit down to discuss their craft. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from some of today’s most talented poets from our region and beyond! We would like to thank Humanities Washington and ArtsWA for helping us present events featuring Rena Priest, our state Poet Laureate.
