Lit Fuse in the Mighty Tieton 10.8 – 10.10.10

I am passing along this note from Michael Schein, about the literary festival he coordinates in Tieton, Washingon, in the hills just west of Yakima.Your wily Splabman will be conducting a couple of workshops and reading from A Time Before Slaughter. The small town DOES become a rich cultural environment during this event and it’s a chance for poets West of the Cascades to re-connect with those EAST of the curtain:

Can you envision yourself in a PoeTown, fruit orchards, ocher hills roiling, art hung in cavernous rooms, moon like a baboon’s bottom?

Come to LiTFUSE, the Northwest’s premier poets’ workshop; register for only $50 this month, plus $75 by the end of September.  Date: 10.8-10.10. Place: Tieton, near Yakima.  Free home-stays available.  Please CLICK HERE to register or for more info.

Warning: may cause visions, 3am gorging on substances not recognizable as food, insight into human predicament.
