About the poet

Born and raised in the Great Lakes region, living now in the Pacific Northwest, Judith Arcana is a writer of poems, stories, essays and books. Praised by writers and readers, reviewers and community leaders, Arcana’s work is published in many collections and journals, online and on paper.

“I learned to read at home when I was 4 or 5. Then, when I was about 6, the public schools of Cleveland, Ohio, introduced me to the classics,” Arcana said. “I’ve been writing for publication since 1961, when I had a story published in the student literary magazine at the University of Illinois. It was a parody – ‘Chicken Little’ as Dostoevsky would have written it. In the years since then, my writing’s been published in a diverse, not to say wild, range of magazines and anthologies; various editions of my books have come from presses of notably different sorts and sizes, eg, Doubleday and Shameless Hussy.”

The Rainbow Cafe, Striped Water Poets, the NorthWest Renaissance, Auburn Arts Commission, City of Auburn, and King County 4Culture make the program possible.
