Rattapallax Blog

Much of the summer Your Wily SPLABman was busy reading poems and interviewing Northwest poets for a Ratapallax Magazine feature. You can see biographies here. There’s a chance we’ll start doing some radio again. The Rattapallax feature is linked here: http://rattapallax.org/blog/2010/northwest-poet/

Poets included:

Emily Kendal Frey, Sarah Mangold, Erin Malone, John and Robert Olson, C.E. Putnam, Mary Paynter Sherwin, Dan Raphael, Carletta Carrington Wilson, & Maged Zaher. The publishers asked me to include my work and we may soon have an interview to add to those I have done with all the participants.

I’d love your feedback on who should have been included and the emerging facets of West Coast and Pacific Rim poetry.
