The Pine Box Capitol Hill
Wed., Feb. 26, 8 p.m. 2014
Local poets Matthew Nienow, Kary Wayson, the Vis-a-Vis Society (Rachel Kessler & Sierra Nelson), and special guest Heather McHugh join out-of-town poets Brittany Cavallaro, Jessica Fisher, Matthew Olzmann, and former Seattleites Hannah Sanghee Park, Zach Savich, Cody Walker, and Catherine Wing. That's a lot of names, and about half of them are must-sees. Given that everybody is sticking to five minutes of stage-time, this should be a quick (and hopefully dirty) survey of modern Seattle poetry, with a few additional poets besides.
