Go Spokane!

We like this: Spokane Poet Laureate Mark Anderson and Spokane Arts currently have an open call for Poetry at the Podium, an opportunity for more than 30 Spokane poets to read their work at Spokane City Council meetings. At each meeting, after the Pledge of Allegiance, during Words of Inspiration, one poet will read a single poem.

Read more in The Spokesman-Review, at Spokane Arts, and on Facebook.

(We also like the Spokane Arts logo, which looks a lot like Spoken Arts.)

As Tod Marshall rounds out his last few days of official laureate duties, The Spokesman-Review has published a thoughtful interview in which Marshall reflects on his experience, observations, and ideas about what’s ahead. Read Carolyn Lamberson’s interview with the outgoing poet laureate here: The end of the road: Washington poet laureate Tod Marshall looks back on two years of words, inspiration, and road trips.

We have it on good authority that Washington State Poet Laureate Tod Marshall is working on a series of readings for Washington 129.

We’ll post them here when dates are confirmed, but meanwhile, check out the review of Washington 129 by Dennis Held in The Spokesman-Review.
