The Last Friday Poetry Group
The Last Friday Poetry Group is hosting Charles Goodrich on January 27th at 7pm. His poems and essays have appeared in Orion, Northwest Review, Willow Springs, The Sun, and Best Essays Northwest among many other publications, and a number of his poems have been read by Garrison Keillor on “The Writer’s Almanac.” He also co-edited the volume In the Blast Zone: Catastrophe and Renewal on Mount St. Helens. He earned his MFA in creative writing from Oregon State University, and he now serves as Director for the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word at Oregon State, a program that hosts writers’ residencies, literary readings, and symposia at the intersection of literature, environmental science, and ethics. Charles is the author of three volumes of poems, Going to Seed: Dispatches from the Garden, Insects of South Corvallis, and, just out from Silverfish Review Press, A Scripture of Crows, and a collection of essays about nature, parenting, and building their house, The Practice of Home. This event is free and open to all. Come join us.
