The lineup of poets for the 2012 festival is finally complete, and you can already imagine the magic these international, national, and Northwest artists are going to stir up when they come together in La Conner this May.

We have celebrated slam poets, cerebral poets, new beat poets, singing poets, strumming poets, and storytellers. They come from urban streets and native pueblos, Irish countryside and Northwest outbacks. Stay tuned to this blog to find out more about the poets, the poetry, and some up-close and personal writing workshops we’ll be offering during the festival.
