Western Washington University will host Washington’s Poet Laureate, Gonzaga University professor Tod Marshall, for a poetry workshop at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28, in Fraser Hall 201.

The event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by an evening reading at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept 29, in Communications 110.

Marshall’s workshop, “Writing Poems That Speak of Home: Washington 129,” is intended to contribute to his Washington 129 project, which gathers submissions from the people of Washington state.

Marshall is an award-winning poet and the author of three poetry collections: Dare Say (2002), The Tangled Line (2009), and Bugle (2014), which won the Washington State Book Award in 2015.

Marshall’s visit is organized by Humanities Washington and The Washington State Arts Commission/ArtsWA, and co-sponsored by Western Libraries, English Department, and Liberal Studies Department.
