Winners, Blog Tour of Writers, and an Invitation...

Cool, California. Now where else would Cool be located?
First and foremost the Writing Process blog tour continues with Katharine Whitcomb's contribution up at Poetry Is Cool I first met Katharine Whitcomb on the page. I am a board member at Floating Bridge Press and Katharine's book Lamp of Letters won the Floating Bridge Chapbook Competition. I admire Katharine's inventive poems very much. I also love her collaborations with the scent artist and her new "self-help" book for those that fear art. You really must check out her poems and her work. You can find out more about her right here.

I also want to congratulate Susan Elbe whose book A Map of What Happened was just chosen as the winner for the Julie Suk Prize from Jacar Press. I'm so happy that I picked up a copy (signed!) at AWP. The book centers on Elbe's hometown of Chicago --- I can't wait to read it.

Finally, I want to invite everyone within adventure distance from Seattle to join me 3:00 PM, Sunday, March 16th at Open Books for the launch of Cloud Pharmacy. This is the very first reading from my new book and I'd love so much to see you there!


  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Susan!

  2. A pleasure; look forward to reading your book!
