Levertov Plaque

September 27, 2016
Splabman

One of the most important poets ever to live and work in Seattle, Denise Levertov died in 1997. There is no mention of her time in Seattle outside the Seward Park house she called home for eight years, but thanks to the Rainier Valley Rotary, SPLAB is spear-heading an Indiegogo campaign to purchase and install the plaque. The campaign would also support the 4th Cascadia Poetry Festival, Nov 3-6, 2016, in Seattle at Spring Street Center, which is dedicated to the memory and will explore the legacy of Levertov in Cascadia. Specifically, funds would support the panel on Levertov’s legacy and the ritual walk to her grave on Sunday morning led by JM Miller, Brenda Hillman and Daphne Marlatt. Our thanks go to the Rotary’s Jayne DeHaan, who spearheaded the project.
