Portland poet to speak at writers' gathering
Conversations With Writers hosts Portland writer Steve Williams at its monthly meeting, slated for Monday, Jan. 30, at 7 p.m.
Williams' work has appeared in "Stirring," "The Rose and Thorn," "Amaze," "Rattlesnake Review," "Verseweavers" and others. His poems have placed or won in the last four Oregon State Poetry contests.
Williams' chapbook, "Thirteen: A Poem," is a large-format, full-color poem in 13 parts with 13 accompanying full-color illustrations created by the author. The narrator navigates his 13th year through upheaval, tragedy and beauty. Williams will explain the origin of this unique idea, plus the biographical background of each poem and its matching art piece. Signed copies will be for sale at a discount price, with all proceeds going to benefit Meals On Wheels.
