Workshop Info: Insider Tips On Getting Your Poems Published! Poet and publisher Risa Denenberg will facilitate a workshop on getting your work published. Strategies for submitting poems to journals, as well as submitting a chapbook or full manuscript for publication will be discussed in the context of the essential need for community. We will discuss how, through surrounding yourself with a community of poets past and present, you can build a personal poetry community and gain confidence in yourself as a poet-in-community.


Risa Denenberg is an aging hippie poet living in Sequim WA. She earns her keep as a nurse practitioner and has worked in end-of-life care for many years. She is a moderator for the Gazebo, an online poetry workshop, and poetry reviewer for the American Journal of Nursing. With Mary Meriam, she runs Headmistress Press, a small press dedicated to publishing fine lesbian poetry. Her publications include her new collection of poetry from MoonPath Press Slight Faith (2018), Whirlwind @ Lesbos (Headmistress Press, 2016); In My Exam Room (The Lives You Touch Publications, 2014);  two chapbooks: what we owe each other (The Lives You Touch Publications 2013) and blinded by clouds (2014, Hyacinth Girls Press); and a full length poetry volume, Mean Distance from the Sun (Aldrich Press, 2013).

David Arthur's bio:

If human unrest is the cloud, rain, and sea combined, 

Then imagine David Arthur's voice to be the heat on the wind.

The world requires some of us to stir the pot and drive the storm on.

David Arthur has been to the places inside us that maps dare not show.

He has been there with a pen, paper, and a decent bottle of scotch, pinching a Marlboro between his teeth screaming "F...  IT, LET'S MAKE A BAD DECISION!"

David Arthur is both warrior and field reporter for the exctacies of life's pleasures and pains.

He's seen too much... And he wants to share…
