I’ve just updated the Poets in the Park page with the complete schedule for this year's festival, plus lists of all the groups and organizations involved, and the names of more than 110 poets and other performers who will be sharing their poetry. Here’s an announcement about the event, which I’m putting on as part of my poet laureate activities for the city of Redmond, Washington.

Poets in the Park: June 20, 2015, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm—FREE

Join us for a free day of poetry! More than 110 scheduled readers, plus workshops, exhibitors, the King County Metro poetry bus, poetry installations, chalk poetry, art activities, mini-golf, hula-hoops, open-mics, free ice cream, and more. Contribute to the lunchtime potluck (participants receive a free poetry book), and bring poetry books to sell in our book fair (no commission taken).
