Where will you be on June 25? How about Anderson Park in Redmond, Washington? I recently updated the Poets in the Park page to feature the 2016 schedule. I began this festival in 2004, repeated it in 2005, and then resurrected it in 2014 as part of my Redmond poet laureate duties, all with help from the Redmond Association of Spokenword. We held the festival again in 2015, with about 250 people in attendance. And it’s all happening again this coming weekend, on 25 June 2016, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, with a wealth of readings, workshops, vendors, a bookfair, installations, and more. And it’s all free! We also have craft activities, mini golf, hula hoops, a poetry nature walk, chalk art, Haiku on Sticks, free ice cream, and other fun distractions. But mainly we’re celebrating poetry. Check out our action-packed schedule (scroll down) and our Facebook invite. See you on June 25!
