Guiding teacher Norman Fischer (with his poet's blazer on) will be presenting at the Friday afternoon/evening session of this year's Skagit River Poetry festival. There are additional programs, including with poetry Naomi Shihab Nye, on Saturday. See their website for details. We're pulled out the information and registration link for the Friday session with Norman here.
After the students leave, the Festival opens at 2:30 to the general public with:
A Poetry Sampler with Kasey Jueds, Paul Hansen and Norman Fischer
And two panel discussions:
At 7:30: A Gathering of Voices. One Poem. Two Minutes
All festival poets read one poem. A great introduction into the sessions for Saturday. If you can’t do a full day, this is the perfect Sampler for you!
