R. R. Seitz’s writing edge is from deep places. His words wind around in a paddy dike maze wishing the tree line, with-out intention of healing promise or wish of moving the reader. He writes it as his skin moves it. His chapbook seems out of print, but he’s around here and there from time to time. He was known for the poetry read at the Index Arts Festival. A two time runner up at Bart Baxter among other: all-mosts. His heroes include: Ray Wiley Hubbard, Hunter S. Thompson and the border guards that allowed Kerouac into Mexico.
He’ll read a few poems and talk about his work and his take on poetry, Tuesday, April 27, 2010, 7-9PM at the SPLAB Living Room, 4816 Rainier AV S, Seattle, in the 2nd Floor Lounge. Follow the signs hastily taped to the banister and wall. $3-$10 suggested donation. Bring 8 copies of a poem you’d like to have critiqued, or any piece of writing. We end for the season at the end of May.
