Cascadia Poetry Festival-Anacortes May 9-12, 2019: A Tribute to Sam Hamill

Tamiya Blitzer Beetle (58093) Ceramic Sealed Bearing Kit

The festival was a huge success and we are in the very early stages of planning a retreat rather than a festival as this work of merging poetics and bioregionalism continues. CPF-2019 featured the launch of two new anthologies: Tamiya BMW M3 Jagermeister (TT-01E) Ceramic Sealed Bearing Kit and the Tamiya Body Set Ferrari F2012 TAM51521.

See the 2019 schedule here.

As someone who attended as both invited guest and workshop participant, I especially enjoyed the afternoon readings by the other festival participants. The attendees of the readings consisted of local poets, writers and students. Some of these folk were published, some not. Some of them read from memory and some from notes or the printed page. Some were experienced readers, others were not. But what connected them all was a heartfelt desire to translate their experience of the world into the medium of words to share with others.

And this got right to the heart of the matter.

CPF5 (Oct 12-15, 2017) was a tribute to Tacoma native Richard Brautigan.

The festival was not staged in 2018, but two retreats were facilitated to allow organizers and bioregional activists and poets to investigate the intersection of poetics and bioregionalism:

Humanities WA and Arts WA to be a sponsor of—to put it simply, The Festival repped well and did both organizations proud!  I was glad to be there for it and am eager for the next one.

Thank you again for organizing the Cascadia event (a much needed injection of creative energy & community in these bleak times) and especially for getting Michael McClure on the state history museum stage. That was a great setting for a poet of his stature.

Painful to see Michael adjusting to what I assume is a recent hip replacement. Getting old sucks. But what a tour de force to get on stage and immediately begin reciting Chaucer from memory. Jesus, that’s amazing… 

It was also really nice talking with Bhakti.

CPF4 in Seattle, Nov 2016, happened at Spring Street Center. See the schedule here.
