Community Tides ~ 5/19/23

This summer Wilderbee Farm is hosting Poetry on the Salish Sea, monthly poetry readings in its Meadery Garden by sixteen poets from around the Olympic Peninsula and beyond. The series is free to the public, from May through October. The readings are sponsored by Wilderbee Farm, Imprint Book Store, the Port Townsend Arts Commission, and The Production Alliance. Kathryn Hunt is the series curator. She’s a writer and teacher, and makes her home on the Salish Coast.  She has three well received books of poetry and two chap books to her credit. Kathryn is joined by Alice Derry, author of six volumes of poetry, three chap books, and has thirty years of experience teaching at at Peninsula College where she curated the Foothills Poetry Series. She’s currently working with local tribal members on the Peninsula who are writing poetry.  Kathryn and Alice join us to tell us about poetry, the event, and its participants.
