Puget Sound Poetry Connection release party for "ARIA 2020"


It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Wright Park in Tacoma, when the members of the Puget Sound Poetry Connection gathered together to celebrate the release of our first collection of poetry from members only. The collection, entitled "ARIA 2020" is the brainchild of PSPC board member Micheal Magee, who collected, edited, and published the collection. 

It was a wonderful opportunity for the members and guests to gather and share our best poems with each other.

There is nothing like holding the poems of your writer friends in your hands in a single volume.


Many Thanks to you, Michael, and to all the poets who contributed.
