Here’s what the Salem Poetry Project is saying:
Pattie Palmer-Baker is artist and poet. Although she often combines these two forms of expression in collages of paste paper and calligraphy, the inspiration for and the meaning of the artwork lies within the poem. Not all her poems appear in her artwork, but her artworks always include her poetry. Nominated for the Pushcart Poetry Prize, and published in many journals including five Poeming Pigeons Anthologies, Voicecatcher, The Best of Voicecatcher), The Ghazal Page, Calyx, Voices – The Art and Science of Psychotherapy, Bacopa Literary Review, Winterwolf Press, and more. First prize winner; 2016 Timberline Review, first, second and the Bivona Prize in the 2019 Ageless Authors contest, and the 2020 first prize in the Central Oregon Writers’ Guild contest. Palmer-Baker will be reading from her recently published chapbook, The Color of Goodbye.
Tricia Knoll moved into the woods in Vermont from Portland, Oregon about three years ago. Her poetry appears widely in journals and anthologies and has received 9 Pushcart Nominations and one Best of Net. Her collection How I Learned To Be White received the 2018 Indie Book Award for Motivational Poetry. . She has four collections in print most of which center on eco-poetry or poetry of place. Her chapbook Checkered Mates came out April 2021. The poems look at relationships skewed, head on and sometimes checkered. Many of the poems tell a story. She will be reading from that chapbook.
