LiTFUSE is an annual weekend long poets' workshop held in Tieton, WA each fall. The event combines writing, exploration, improvisation, meditation, camaraderie and natural beauty to ignite your muse! The mission of LiTFUSE is to unite poets from all over the Northwest and beyond, to open us to fresh voices and inspiration, and to deepen community with our fellow poets and artists.
This year, Christopher Howell - author of the poety collection, Love's Last Number - will be presenting.
We are thrilled to announce the publication of two very special books today: Alex Lemon's Feverland: A Memoir in Shards and William Brewer's National Poetry Series-winning collection of poems I Know Your Kind. Both share a common impulse to meet pain and stigma with beauty and art.
Litquake returns at last to this beautiful French Gothic-style Episcopal church atop Nob Hill, for a special evening of exalted verse from a sterling lineup of poets. With readings from Jason Bayani, William Brewer–author of I Know Your Kind –Victor Hernández Cruz, Tongo Eisen-Martin, Grace Cathedral Artist in Resident Sarah Kay, San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck, and Jen Siraganian.
Join National Geographic Adventurers of the Year, educators, and authors Amy and Dave Freeman in celebration of their debut book, A Year in the Wilderness, a passionate and beautifully illustrated account of a year in the Boundary Waters. Special guest musician and poet Ben Weaver will perform and join the conversation. Presented by Milkweed and Subtext Books.
The Trakl siblings were gifted and troubled: Georg a poet, Grete a pianist, and both gone at a young age. Inspired by their mysterious and intense relationship, the winner of the 2017 Lindquist & Vennum Prize for Poetry is a keening exploration of desire between brother and sister, poet and subject, the living and the dead.
This Jake Adam York Prize winner is a vivid portrait of the artist as a young woman. At every step, these poems seduce with history, folklore, and sensory detail—grilled meat, golden habañeros, and burnt sugar—before delivering clear-eyed and eviscerating insights into power, deceit, relationships, and ourselves.
