Tonight's show was one of the most fun, creative and inspirational "Paula's Picks" yet! There was great music, but also AMAZING poets who were local, established and generous with their time and art.

Four poets joined us for a "Poets' Roundtable", which I hope to make a monthly series to showcase a slice of the local poetry scene. Each poet shared a few poems, some reflections and insights on poetry and their lives as poets and left us in awe! A big thanks (in order of reading) to: Barbara Drake, Scot Siegel, Penelope Scambly Schott and Mark Thalman.

Oregon's newest (read: 6th) Poet Laureate, Paulann Petersen also joined us to share more information the Friends of William Stafford - a 501(c)3 non-profit established to continue the legacy of the late, great William Stafford.

As Paulann mentioned, anyone interested in the community of poetry, as well as the creativity inspired by William Stafford, should visit the website for more information on becoming a member, or to find out about upcoming events.
