new Bellingham venue

August 28, 2017

Poetry has a new home in Bellingham, Washington: Greene’s Corner (formerly at Smith Road and Northwest Avenue, now on James Street where VIS Seafoods used to live). With poetry features coordinated by Betty Scott, Acoustic Wednesdays are hosted by musician JP Falcon Grady and open with music (6:30pm), followed by an open mic (7:00pm) and then the evening’s feature: poetry read by outstanding regional poets.

This Wednesday, August 30, 2017, the featured poets are father and son John Morgan and Jeffrey Morgan.

John Morgan divides his time between Bellingham and Fairbanks, Alaska. He has published six books of poetry and a collection of essays, and his work has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, The Paris Review, and many other magazines. In 2009, he served as the first writer-in-residence at Denali National Park.

Jeffrey Morgan is the author of Crying Shame. His poems have appeared in The Kenyon Review, Rattle, and West Branch. He is a 2017 National Poetry Series Finalist.

words and music workshop

March 14, 2017

Musician JP Falcon Grady and poet Betty Scott are offering a workshop titled “Poetic Justice” through Whatcom Community College Community Ed program on Saturday, March 18, 9:30am to 4:30pm. Together, participants will laugh, be creative, thoughtful and inspired. Write from prompts, discuss communication strategies that build trust and explore the joys and challenges of creative collaborations moving through the inevitable “fall-apart” stage of re-visioning or restructuring a work in progress. It is bound to be a lively workshop.

See the complete lineup of Chuckanut Writers Writing Classes and a link to the course description and registration information.
