Friday, January 26th from 6 PM to 7:30 PM
Join us for an evening with the Olympia-based Fusion writing collective as they celebrate their long-anticipated anthology, Dancing at the Edges. The new anthology, Dancing at the Edges, includes poetry of hard-earned wisdom by Olympia, Washington-area women: Chris Dahl, Gail Madden, Kay Mullen, Kathleen Peppard, Cynthia Pratt, Sue Prince, Suzanne Simons, Liz St. Louis, and Linda Strever.
About the Fusion writing collective:
The Fusion writing group resulted from the merging of two Olympia critique/workshops. The first workshop had its roots in the late '70s and included both Cynthia Pratt and Chris Dahl. Linda Strever joined in 1988. A parallel group was founded by Jeanne Lohmann when she moved here in 1991. Both were open groups and attendance overlapped, so "fusing" the groups together seemed a logical progression. Since Jeanne no longer drove, she opened her home as the permanent meeting point (an office now taken over by Liz St. Louis). Numerous local poets, including men, have graced the sessions over the years and currently, Liz St. Louis, Kay Mullen, Suzanne Simons, Sue Prince, Gail Madden, and Kathleen Peppard are stalwarts.
