Subject: Tues. March 6: Castalia!
Tuesday, March 6th, 8 pm
Richard Hugo House, Capitol Hill
Dear March, Come in (and bring some writers with you) at the March Castalia Reading! We have a lovely line-up for Tuesday, March 6th, beginning with some promising second year prose writers Valerie Arvidson and Cecilia Kiely.
Prepare for more than a mere smattering of alumni, as we are excited to feature:
Sarah Erickson ('09 Poetry, '10 Prose), who has a penchant for the sensual and mystical.
Prose alum Zachary Watterson, a Pushcart Prize nominee and the recipient of multiple scholarships to the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. He has been published in The Massachusetts Review, The Stranger, Sendero, Salt River Review, and Struggle, among others.
And poet Kevin Craft, who received his MFA in 1995. He is the current editor of Poetry Northwest and has had work appear in Poetry, VERSE, AGNI, and Poetry Daily. Kevin has received fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the Bogliasco Foundation, the Camargo Foundation, and the Artist Trust of Washington State. His collection Solar Prominence was published in 2005.
Our final reader for the evening will be UW professor Richard Kenney, who has among other things, been the recipient of the Yale Younger Poets Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a MacArthur Genius Award. His collections of poems include The Evolution of the Flightless Bird, Orrery, The Invention of the Zero, and most recently The One-Strand River.
We are honored and excited to have all of these writers perform at Castalia this month. See you there!
. . . As always the bar and the book table will be open, so bring your thirst (for drinks & books) and some cash! . . .
"Dear March, come in!" by Emily Dickinson
Part Two: Nature
DEAR March, come in!
How glad I am!
I looked for you before.
Put down your hat—
You must have walked—
How out of breath you are!
Dear March, how are you?
And the rest?
Did you leave Nature well?
Oh, March, come right upstairs with me,
I have so much to tell!
I got your letter, and the bird’s;
The maples never knew
That you were coming,—I declare,
How red their faces grew!
But, March, forgive me—
And all those hills
You left for me to hue;
There was no purple suitable,
You took it all with you.
Who knocks? That April!
Lock the door!
I will not be pursued!
He stayed away a year, to call
When I am occupied.
But trifles look so trivial
As soon as you have come,
That blame is just as dear as praise
And praise as mere as blame.
On Sunday, March 11, 2012 at 2 a.m., Daylight Saving Time begins.
and March 21st is the Spring Equinox!
