Rogue Valley Poets Assemble To Share Recent Wares


Maybe it is poets who are best suited to life in the pandemic. When you're forced to change routines, slow down, spend time by yourself... these can all be factors in the creation of poetry.

We welcome three poets from our region, all of whom have published works this year. Daybreak on the Water is a collection of poems by Rogue Valley poet Gary Lark, celebrating the Umpqua Valley.

Promised Fruit is a collection of the work of Alma Rosa Alvarez and Michelle St. Romain Wilson, on their own imprint, Singing Bird Press.

We bring the poets together to hear about process, and to hear poems.
