KBOO Radio Poetry Reading for Fault Lines Poetry Journal

Faultlines is a new Portland-based journal of West Coast poetry which includes work from 71 writers, both new and well-established poets. The subtitle of Faultlines is “Poems for People,” and editor Tony Pfannenstiel has aimed to present poems that are engaging and accessible.

The voices of West Coast poets were given short shrift by the 20th century literary establishment, and Pfannenstiel wants to change that dynamic, presenting the voices and visions of the finest and freshest American poets on the Pacific Rim, both well known and emerging, young and old.

Tune in to hear Tony and local poets Ryan Scariano, Kirby Light, Gail Barker, Elizabeth Ferguson, Susan Parman and, from Eugene, Sam Roderick Roxas-Chua, as they read their poems & talk with Barbara LaMorticella.
