Favorite Poem by ACLU of Washington.

Smack dab in the middle of March, WordsWest welcomes resistance to xenophobia and embraces our rich history of immigration. “Beware the Ides of March,” the soothsayer warned Julius Caesar, marking a turning point in history. What kind of turning point do we face? Join prize winning fiction writer Donna Miscolta, and West Seattle poet and civil rights attorney Shankar Narayan on Wednesday, March 15 as they share with us their work and experiences.

This evening is supported in part by a grant from Poets & Writers, Inc. and by Seattle’s Office of Arts & Culture. Also, refreshments will be served!

Donna Miscolta’s short story collection Hola and Goodbye won the Doris Bakwin Award for Writing by a Woman and publication by Carolina Wren Press. She is also the author of the novel When the de la Cruz Family Danced. Her stories and essays have appeared in many journals, including The Adirondack Review and Crate.

Shankar Narayan explores identity, power, and race in a world where the body is flung across borders yet possesses unrivaled power to transcend them. A Pushcart Prize nominee and a 2016 Fellow at Kundiman and at Hugo House, Shankar draws strength from his global upbringing and from his work as a civil rights attorney.ork has appeared in Raven Chronicles, Crab Creek Review, and in the anthology Poets Against Hate.

Every third Wednesday at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to guided writing explorations. Each month we also host a community member to share his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E.
