About the poet

Silano’s recent books include “Reckless Lovely” (Saturnalia Books, 2014) and an expanded edition of “What the Truth Tastes Like,” her award-winning first collection. She also co-edited, with Kelli Russell Agodon, “The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts For Your Writing Practice.” Saturnalia will release her fifth collection, “Mission Boulevard,” in early 2019. Her poems have appeared in many places, including POETRY, Paris Review, American Poetry Review, and North American Review, where she received the 2014 James Hearst Poetry Prize.

She teaches at Bellevue College.

Teeters has published poetry in several anthologies. He conducts poetry workshops for children and adults and is active in poetry readings in the Seattle area through the Striped Water Poets. He is the author of nine poetry collections and the books “Teach with Style” (ATD Press July 2013) and “Going Intergenerational” (Barclay press 2010). His latest book is “Because of This – Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching: How to Live, Love and Lead” and coming later this year is “Beware of Dog: Fun Poems for School Kids” published by MoonPath Press.

Teeters is a retired social worker and former child care licensor and trainer who leads the poetry club at the Kent Senior Center.

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