WEST SEATTLE—It’s the series-ending celebration to bid farewell to WordsWest Literary Series! In its five-year history, WordsWest has hosted world-class writers from Seattle and beyond. In the past year alone WordsWest featured 8 of the 2018 Washington State Book Award finalists (and 3 of the winners) before they were even nominated!

On June 19, 2019, please join us for tres leches cake in the garden, a specially designed cocktail, and a sampling of the incredible WordsWest writers from all five years of its existence: Elizabeth Austen, Quenton Baker, Rick Barot, Claudia Castro Luna, Christine Deavel, Lyanda Lynn Haupt, Rachel Kessler, J.W. Marshall, Greg November, Renee Simms, and Ann Teplick.

The Favorite Poem Project invites a community member to share a favorite poem and information about his or her organization. In our series finale, WordsWest welcomes its prose-writing co-curator Harold Taw.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. It is eternally grateful to C & P Coffee Company for being its host and sponsor through five years.
