Poets of the Northwest: Montana, Oregon, and Washington

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Northwest poets Joe Wilkins, M.L. Smoker, and Kathryn Smith as they discuss how the landscape, animals, and culture of the west has influenced their work. Wilkins grew up in the Bull Mountains of Eastern Montana, and his poetry frequently draws on the sparse beauty of the region. Smoker, conversely, uses her poetry to examine the complexity of reservation life in rural Montana. She’s a member of both the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes, and works in the Indian Education Division of the Office of Public Instruction. Kathryn Smith is a Spokane poet whose work explores the intersection between the human, the animal, and the landscapes on which they coexist. The discussion will be moderated by poet and SFCC professor Tim Greenup.

SFCC, Building 24, room 110.
Free and open to the public.
