October 15, 2014 Words West Literary Series Words West is a literary series lovingly curated and expertly organized by poet Susan Rich, Harold Taw and Katy Ellis in the intimate setting of C&P Coffee House in West Seattle. I had the pleasure of participating in a braided reading with poet Rick Barot; we traded poems back and forth and answered questions posed by Susan and the audience about the relationship between poetry and politics. And we commiserated about the anti-poetic properties of FOX News. Watch the event here.
