WordsWest Literary Series: “Nourishment” @ C & P Coffee Company
Nov 16 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

At C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor):

On Wednesday, November 16th, WordsWest Literary Series: As the weather turns cooler, join award-winning author Alma García and performance poet Imani Sims for an evening of literary nourishment. A community dessert sale will benefit West Seattle Food Bank, which will also present a Favorite Poem. The evening is partially funded by Poets & Writers.

Alma García’s short fiction has been published as an award-winner in Narrative Magazine, Enizagam, Passages North, and Boulevard; has most recently appeared in Kweli Journal, Duende and Bluestem; and appears in the anthology, Roadside Curiosities: Short Stories on American Pop Culture (University of Leipzig). A past recipient of a fellowship from the Rona Jaffe Foundation, she makes her home in Seattle, where she teaches fiction writing at the Richard Hugo House and is a private editing consultant as well as a violin instructor. She recently completed her first novel.

Imani Sims is a stiletto-loving Seattle native who spun her first performance poem at the age of fourteen. Since then, she has developed an infinitely rippling love for poetry in all of its forms. She believes in the healing power of words and the transformational nuance of the human story. Imani works to empower youth and adults through various writing courses and interdisciplinary shows all over Washington. She is a 2015 Lambda Literary Emerging Writer Fellow and 2015 Jack Straw Fellow. She is the author of three books of poetry: Twisted Oak, Beloved: Collision and the October 2016 (A)live Heart.

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. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. For more information, please contact or visit
