Mindy Nettifee, Brian S. Ellis, Jon Sands and I have a poetry group called The Whirlwind Company. We’re touring this month in Olympia, Seattle, Spokane, Portland, Boston and NYC. You can also check out the Whirlwind Company’s upcoming tour dates here.

And be sure to add us on Facebook. Click on our events and help spread the word.

This is Matthew Bogart’s beautiful new poster art for our Whirlwind Company 2012 Tour. You can check him out at his site and his tumblr The Days Are Long And Short He is so very cool.



Oh, hey there, Pacific Northwest! We’re touring all over you for National Poetry Month.

We’re gonna be little poetry spewing ants, crawling all over Oregon and Washington.
