About the Author
Author bios from all contributing poets will be available at ooligan.pdx.edu.
The Pacific Poetry Project’s inaugural project, Alive at the Center, is an anthology of contemporary poetry from writers in Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver B.C. that highlights the poetic atmosphere of each city. A total of nine locally invested poetry editors submitted material for the book, while three anthology editors (one from each city) made the final selections for the book. The result is a collection of over two hundred poems that represent the Pacific Northwest and provide a dynamic snapshot of local cultural life.
