Meanwhile, in the back room–
The Salem Poetry Project (with Marc Janssen) is hosting a Willawaw Journal Reading at the Barrel and Keg on Broadway, April 26th at 7:00p.m. Please join the editor, Rachel Barton and a handful of fellow readers from Salem and Corvallis as we draw from the three issues of our online journal. Open mic to follow! (Great eats from the rotating food carts out back and drinks from the bar upfront)
Willawaw Journal was successfully launched to a full house at the Old World Deli on Saturday, May 6th, 2017. Readers Peter Sears, Tammy Robacker, Jade Rosina McCutcheon, Merridawn Duckler, Doug Stone, and Rachel Barton entertained a very upbeat and receptive crowd.
Special thanks to Ted Cox for opening this venue to poetry. Thanks to the photographer, Edward Louie. Thanks, also, to Jeanette Hardison for managing the book table with short notice. We bought books, ate great food (–check out the brownies!), and listened to the fine work of the poets in the company of friends. It was a deeply satisfying manifestation of the support and positive energy behind the Willawaw Journal. The Editors thank you all!
