You Wrote it…Now Read it Aloud!, Corvallis

July 20, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

You Wrote it…You sweated over it…Now Read it aloud!

An Evening with Peter Sears

WWotR (the Corvallis area Chapter of Willamette Writers) is delighted to
welcome Poet Peter Sears as our July speaker. Peter is perhaps best known in
our part of the world as Oregon Poet Laureate, but his career includes many
other accomplishments. His work has appeared in several nation magazines and
newspapers such as Saturday Review, The New York Times, The Atlantic, Mother
Jones, The Christian Science Monitor, and Rolling Stone, as well as in literary
magazines such as Field, New Letters, Iowa Review, Poetry Northwest, Antioch
Review, Ploughshares, and Seneca Review.

Sears is the author of three full-length poetry collections — Tour: New and
Selected Poems, The Brink, and Green Diver, a number of poetry chapbooks, and
books on teaching writing, including Secret Writing, and I’m Gonna Bake Me a
Rainbow Poem.

So it’s a good bet the evening will be filled plenty of poetic fun and insight. Be
there!

First Presbyterian Church, 114 SW 8th Street (enter Dennis Hall off the 9th Street
parking lot entrance behind the church), Corvallis, Oregon.
