Steve Williams and Constance Hall read their poems and talk about and share poetry from their “Figures of Speech” reading series at In Other Word Books. Barbara LaMorticella hosts.
About himself, Steve writes: Steve Williams works and lives in Portland, Oregon with a lovely woman who writes and edits much better than he but refuses to admit it. Together they do many things poetic like hosting a reading series, a free open to the public critique group, an online workshop forum -- wildpoetryforum.com (for 12 years now), and a monthly creative writing workshop in an assisted living center.
Constance Hall (Penname: M) serves as an Poetry Editor for Stirring: A Literary Collection; Administrator of an online poetry workshop; Co-Chair for the Portland Unit of the Oregon Poetry Association; and Board Member for VoiceCatcher, an annual anthology of women’s poetry/prose. Her work has appeared in a variety of journals and has twice been nominated for Best New Poets. She writes that she is severely allergic to any activity even remotely domestic (cooking, gardening, etc.), preferring instead to read, read, and if she has any spare time, to read.
