Ludwin, Miller to visit Auburn's Poetry at The Station Bistro

Poetry at The Station Bistro presents the works of Peter Ludwin and Kevin Miller tonight.

The program is from 7-9 p.m. at the Bistro, 110 Second St. SW, No. 125, one block south of West Main Street, on the east side of the Auburn Transit Center.

Coffee and conversation follow readings. It is an open mic opportunity. The public is invited.

Ludwin's writing influences are multiple and varied. His long association with American folk music is one. A sense of music, rhythm and vividness of focus is important to him in terms of what he tries to incorporate into his writing. Certainly the natural world, especially those parts of it that manifest immense space, is another major influence. It has for Peter a definite spiritual dimension.

Some of the instructors Peter has worked under include Mark Doty, Cornelius Eady, Forrest Gander, C.D. Wright, Alastair Reid, Marjorie Agosin, Alfred Corn and X.J. Kennedy. His poems have appeared in numerous journals, most prominently The Antitam Review, Chaminade Literary Review, Coal City Review, Illya's Honey, Karumu, Hurricane Review, Lullwater Review, Midwest Quarterly, Permafrost, Raven Chronicles, Lake Effect, Small Pond Magazine of Literature, South Carolina Review, South Dakota Review and Whiskey Island Magazine.

Soundings Review named Peter the Reader's Choice winner for their 2011 spring/summer issue for his poem, "A Convocation of Crows".

Meanwhile, Pleasure Boat Studio published Miller's most recent collection, "Home & Away: The Old Town Poems in 2009". Blue Begonia Press published his first two collections, "Light That Whispers Morning" in 1994 and "Everywhere Was Far" in 1998. He taught in the public schools of Washington state for 39 years.

His recent poems have appeared in The Massachusetts Review, The San Pedro River Review, and Crab Creek Review. Miller lives in Tacoma.
