Postcards From Mapes Creek

Join us next to Mapes Creek at 4:30 Sunday, July 14, 2024, as Tim Mateer, of Austin, TX, Abhaya Thomas of Portland, OR, and Colette Dutton of Yellville, AR, talk about their approach to the annual Poetry Postcard Fest along with local poets Zach Charles, Sally Hedges-Blanquez, Poetry Postcard Fest co-founder, Paul E. Nelson and others. Folks from Engage, Educate, & Discover at Mapes Creek/dxʷwuqʷəb share the vision that the whole creek will see the light of day. Be’er Sheva Park is at the intersection of Seward Park Av S and Henderson in Seattle’s Rainier Beach Neighborhood. We are grateful to the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching fund for a grant to help stage this event!

UPDATE: Stacey Jones, Denny Stern, Greg Bem, Ellen Shaman and Lorna Dee Cervantes have been added to the bill!
