Back in 2004, I created the Poets in the Park conference in Redmond, Washington. It was sponsored by the Redmond Association of Spokenword, and held in the spring of 2004, and again in the spring of 2005. As part of my 2013–2014 duties as poet laureate for the City of Redmond, I’m reviving this conference, to be held 26–27 April 2014 at the Redmond Senior Center. To that end, I’ve created a new Poets in the Park page on Graceguts to promote and support the event. More details will be coming soon regarding featured poets, and all the workshops, readings, panel discussions, bookfair, and other poetry activities in the works. Mark you calendar!
