Sideshow Emporium and Gallery presents
Word Sharks Resurface
on Thursday, October 3rd at 7 pm,
ending only after the tide recedes.

Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer has served as San Miguel County’s first poet laureate, authoring and editing thirteen books, including her most recent publication, The Less I Hold. Editor Uche Ogbuji describes Rosemerry as “always looking for the threads from the intimate to the transcendent…poems [that] are full of the restless energy needed to caress a child or a spouse in the one moment, and in the next to expand into the spheres of the night sky.” She has been chosen as a finalist for the Colorado Book Award, and won the Colorado Independent Press Association poetry award. Rosemerry’s writing has appeared on back alley fences, in her children’s lunchboxes, and on rocks she leaves around town. She also leads writing workshops for hospice, recovery programs, women’s groups, teachers and people who think they hate poetry.

Art Goodtimes is a performance poet & Western Slope Poet Laureate, and newspaper columnist, among many other things. He is legendary along the Southern Rockies as poet, performer, ritualist, Rainbow Tribe member, and Green Party activist. In her introduction, “deep ecologist” Dolores LaChapelle describes him as part of the bardic tradition “which shows us how nature and human consciousness are but different aspects of one consciousness. Bards put mind and body together within the whole of nature.” In his poetry collection, As if the World Really Mattered, we find poems that joyfully expound on
the natural world and our relationship to it.

David Feela is a poet, free-lance writer, writing instructor, and book collector. His work has appeared in the Utne Reader, High Country News, Mountain Gazette, The Four Corners Free Press, the Denver Post, the Durango Telegraph and the former Inside/Outside Southwest, among other regional and national publications. A poetry chapbook, Thought Experiments (Maverick Press), won the Southwest Poet Series. His first full length poetry book, The Home Atlas, appeared in 2009. His collection of essays, How Delicate These Arches, was selected as a finalist for the Colorado Book Award in the category of Creative Nonfiction.

We look forward to seeing you at Word Sharks Resurface early next month on Thursday Oct 3 !
