Alive at the Center: Contemporary Poems from the Pacific Northwest (Pacific Poetry Project) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Pacific Northwest’s vast and varied contemporary poetry scene is on display in Alive at the Center, a community-based anthology drawing from Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC. A collection of more than 200 poems from a wide spectrum of poets, Alive at the Center is a cultural snapshot, showcasing the best new and established voices from these three cities. Three poets from each city came together to recognize the best work of their peers, curating a collection that explores the atmosphere, beauty, complexity, and personality of the region. As the inaugural project from Ooligan Press’s Pacific Poetry Project, this book embodies the Project’s mission to bring poetry to the people by making contemporary poetic voices accessible and exciting for everyone through community involvement and conversation.

About the Author

Alive at the Center was compiled by three well-known poets from each city, who worked together to select and compile the most representative work of their communities. They are: Susan Denning, Jesse Lichenstein, and Leah Stenson (Portland); Cody Walker, Kathleen Flenniken, and David D. Horowitz (Seattle); and Daniela Elza, Bonnie Nish, and Robin Susanto (Vancouver).
Author bios from all contributing poets will be available at ooligan.pdx.edu.
