Featuring Kelli Russell Agodon

The old Tony’s Talkin’ To, rebirthed as the Last Stand at Wildwood Saloon. Open mic poetry, sign ups start at 7:30. No guitars. Fighting literary isolation and cultural oppression of poetry and free thought since 2006 or so. This is the Last Stand. Together we stand for the poetic revolution of open minds and cultural plurality, community, LGBTQ+ friendly, uncensored, unrestrained & uninhibited. And this month we welcome Kelli Russell Agodon in a sort of book launch for her newest publication from Copper Canyon Press, DIALOGUES WITH RISING TIDES. Kelli comes to us from a paddle board deep in the Seattle Sound where she has been distilling spells and feeding the mites and bits that reside within the Rainier Writer’s Workshop.
