Priscilla Long with Sierra Nelson

Tonight we welcome two Seattle writers, Priscilla Long and Sierra Nelson, whom we've featured on quite a few occasions "in person" at Elliott Bay. They'll visit us virtually this time, appearing in conversation and in poetry. They will read their red poems, their blue poems, their poems that shimmer with fuchsia and orange. They will talk about their strategies and approaches toward achieving multihued poems that may be compared to paintings or to bioluminescence. Priscilla Long's Holy Magic won MoonPath Press's Sally Albiso Poetry Book Award. Her first poetry book is Crossing Over (University of New Mexico Press. She is author of a collection of memoirist essays: Fire and Stone: Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (University of Georgia Press), a guide for artists titled Minding the Muse (Coffeetown), and The Writer's Portable Mentor: A Guide to Art, Craft, and the Writing Life. She is an independent teacher of writing and a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society. Sierra Nelson's books include The Lachrymose Report (PoetryNW Editions) and collaboration with artist Loren Erdrich I Take Back the Sponge Cake (Rose Metal Press). She is co-founder of The Typing Explosion and the Vis-a-Vis Society, and president of Seattle's Cephalopod Appreciation Society. She currently teaches through Writers in the Schools (WITS) and Hugo House.

Signed books are available for purchase.
