Feedback form is now closed.
Join us for a reading that celebrates 25 years of joyful and fruitful collaboration between Lynx House Press and Lost Horse Press. These two long-running literary presses have been collaborating on programing, editing, design, and public events since 1997. During that time between them they have brought into the world more
than 200 volumes of poetry, fiction, translation, and literary nonfiction. The directors of the two presses, Christopher Howell and Christine Holbert, also founded, with Scott Poole, the Get Lit! Festival itself; and have sponsored countless readings and workshops from southern Oregon to Spokane, Sandpoint, and Missoula.
The reading will feature Lost Horse poets Carolyne Wright, Derek Annis, Polly Buckingham, and Kathryn Hunt, and from Lynx House Melissa Kwasny, Nance VanWinckel, and Kathleen Flenniken, all of whom have had volumes in the Pacific Northwest Poets Series, of which Lynx House Press is, as of 2021, publisher.
Books will be for sale on site, and there will be opportunity to meet and talk with the poets at the
conclusion of the reading.

We thank both Christopher Howell and Christine Holbert for their longstanding support. Get Lit! would not exist without these two champions of our local literary landscape.

In order to attend this event, you must purchase a Weekend Pass. One pass ($15 + fees) covers entry into ALL events on Saturday and Sunday at The Montvale Event Center. There will be metered parking or paid downtown lots. Make sure to join our mailing list for future festival announcements.
