One of the most effective and powerful is by reading other accomplished poets. Local verse-makers will share work by their favorite writers coupled with the poems they created because of them on Saturday, April 21, 6-7:30 p.m. at Orca Books in downtown Olympia. Poets participating include: Carolyn Gilman, Patrick Dixon, Lorrie Lambert Smith, Thomas A. Thomas, Joanne Clarkson, Wesley Jones and Carol Sunde.
