About the poets

Kevin Miller lives in Tacoma. He has worked in the public schools for many years, teaching in Blaine, Gig Harbor and Olympia.

In 1990-91 he was a Fulbright Exchange teacher at Grenå Handelsskole, Grenå, Denmark. Pleasure Boat Studio published his most recent poetry collection, “Home & Away: The Old Town Poems”, in 2008. Blue Begonia Press, Yakima, published Miller’s first two collections, “Light That Whispers Morning” (winner of the 1994 Bumbershoot/Weyerhaeuser Publication Award), and “Everywhere Was Far”. Other poems have appeared in Crab Creek Review, San Pedro River Review, and Massachusetts Review.

Tim Sherry has been a public high school teacher and coach, a high school principal, volunteered over the years in church and community activities, and is a grandfather. And always there was poetry kept private because athletes and coaches and principals and Scandinavian Lutherans don’t usually do that sort of thing.

He earned a degree in English from Pacific Lutheran University and a master’s degree in English from The University of Chicago and has had poems published in Crab Creek Review, The Raven Chronicles, Seminary Ridge Review, Windfall: A Journal of Poetry of Place, Floating Bridge Review, and others. He has been a Pushcart nominee, and in 2010 was an Artsmith Artist Resident on Orcas Island.

His poem, “Of Fires”, was a finalist for the Rash Award in Poetry and published in The Broad River Review. “One of Seven Billion” from Moonpath Press is his first full-length collection.

Poetry at The Station Bistro is made possible with the help of the restaurant, City of Auburn, The Auburn Arts Commission, Striped Water Poets and NorthWest Renaissance.
