WordsWest Literary Series says
“Death and Taxes: The National Poetry Month Special” with Kelli Russell Agodon and January Gill O’Neil / This event is supported by Poets & Writers, Inc.

What is certain in life beyond death and taxes is poetry. From the Tuareg nomads of Niger to the troubadours of France, people from every culture connect to the spoken word. For the April 15th, 2015 edition of WordsWest Literary Series Washington poet Kelli Russell Agodon and Massachusetts poet, January Gill O’Neil, will join us for a night of poetry, including a few poetry exercises. This month WordsWest is again very grateful for a grant from Poets & Writers that allows WorsdWest to pay the poets for their time and talent.

Kelli Russell Agodon is an award-winning poet, writer, and editor from the Pacific Northwest. Her most recent collection is Hourglass Museum (White Pine Press, 2014) and The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice, which she coauthored with Martha Silano. Her second collection, Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room was chosen by Carl Dennis for the winner of the White Pine Press Book Prize, and was also the Winner of ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year in Poetry as well as a Finalist for the Washington State Book Prize. Her other books include Small Knots, Geography, and Fire On Her Tongue: An Anthology of Contemporary Women's Poetry. Kelli is the cofounder of Two Sylvias Press and is a Co-Director of Poets on the Coast: A Retreat for Women Poets. www.agodon.com <http://www.agodon.com>

Every third Wednesday, 7pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month a community member from a local, independent business shares his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On April 15th, we welcome Paul Nojaim of West Seattle Acupuncture.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw.
