'Wine is bottled poetry.' Robert Louis Stevenson
April is National Poetry Month. We are thrilled to host two events during the month to celebrate the occasion.

John Morrison won the Rhea & Seymour Gorsline Poetry Competition for his book Heaven of the Moment, which was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award in poetry. His poems have appeared in the Beloit Poetry Journal, Poetry Northwest, the Cimarron Review, and RHINO among other literary journals. He teaches poetry as an associate fellow at the Attic Institute in Portland, Oregon.
