The Cascadia Poetry Festival seeks to examine the culture of this region (see map) by gathering poets from the California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, British Columbia, the Alaska panhandle and Western Montana to learn, share ideas and techniques, begin to discover the qualities of this bioregion and the possibilities for deeper connection between the inhabitants from all parts of the region.
The second Cascadia Poetry Festival is scheduled for May 2-4, 2014, at Seattle University. Details are forthcoming. Information on Cascadia I (2012) is here.
David McCloskey is a long-time bioregionalist. He taught Sociology, Ecology, and Geography
at Seattle University for many years. Known as “the Father of Cascadia,” he has spoken,
organized, and written widely on Cascadia & the Bioregional Vision. He made the first maps
of “Cascadia” & “The Ecoregions of Cascadia,” and is currently working on “The Bioregions
of Western North America.”
In search of the spirit of place, he has also compiled an anthology of
Cascadian Poetry in 4 movements: “Mountains, Rivers, Sea, and Sky.”
He retired in 2004, and moved back home to Eugene to remodel
the family homestead, and run the Cascadia Institute.
To sponsor or volunteer, contact Paul Nelson at 206.422.5002 or email@example.com.
We’re grateful to David McCloskey of the Cascadia Institute for his vision, inspiration and for the donation of Cascadia Maps.
