Lit Fuse 2013

Dear Poets & Lit Lovers,

This September 27-29, poets from all over the US (& beyond!) will be gathering in the golden light of Tieton for LiTFUSE Poets’ Workshop.  This year, our featured artist is Dorianne Laux, and our performing artist is Andre Feriante.  Please join us!  Gathering with fellow poets in a beautiful town to work on poetic craft is a way of embracing what matters most.

The 2013 Schedule is now online, and it is so varied & delicious!  I am grateful for the amazing faculty committed to sharing their spark with us.  CLICK HERE to view the schedule.

If you are interested in the Dorianne Laux Master Class – hurry! – there’s only one spot left!  But don’t fret – we’re offering 2 other master classes this year, including one on Friday evening.

Where in the world is Tieton?  It’s about a 3 hour drive from Seattle or Portland, near Yakima, in the heart of fruit-growing country on the eastern foothills of the Cascades.  For more info on this artisan community, please visit  There are B&B’s and country inns nearby, or camping in Tieton, and plenty of lodging in Yakima, which is only 20 minutes down the road.

Poets UNiTE!
