WordsWest 13 (New Year 2016) - Christine Deavel and J.W. Marshall

WordsWest Literary Series Presents
“Resolutions Gone Awry”
with Christine Deavel and John Marshall
Favorite Poem by Ann Przyzycki, Publisher of Isthmus

We will focus on the quickly forgotten, the over-the-top, the somewhat twisted New Year’s Resolutions for our first WordsWest program of 2016: Resolutions

Gone Awry. This month’s event is sponsored by Isthmus: a print journal of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry published biannually in Seattle

We’re looking forward to a second year of bringing world class writers to town. For the January 20th, 2016 edition of WordsWest Literary Series, beloved Seattle poets Christine Deavel and J.W. Marshall, will join us for WordsWest’s kickoff for the New Year. This month WordsWest Literary Series is grateful to be sponsored by Isthmus which will allows us to pay our poets for their time and their talent.

Christine Deavel is co-owner of Open Books: A Poem Emporium and works as a patient and family liaison at Harborview Medical Center. Her collection Woodnote was published by Bear Star Press and received the Washington State Book Award in 2012. Born in Indiana, she has lived in Seattle since 1986.

J.W. Marshall, also known as John, co-owns and operates Open Books, a twenty-year-old poetry-only bookstore in the Wallingford neighborhood. He has most recently had poetry published in the Seattle Times and he has poems forthcoming in Poetry Northwest and Hubbub. He has taught workshops through Hugo House. In 2008 Oberlin College Press published his full-length poetry collection, Meaning a Cloud.

Every third Wednesday, 7pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month we also host a community member from a local, independent business to share his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On September January 20th, we welcome West Seattle resident, Ann Przyzycki, Publisher of Isthmus: a journal that seeks to create a thoughtful, memorable reading experience that showcases a range of styles and perspectives. Isthmus hopes to bring a little of Seattle to the world and a little of the rest of the world to Seattle.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. For more information, please contact wordswestliterary@gmail.com or visit http://WordsWestLiterary.com.
