Alumna shares new work during Poetry Press Week

December 02, 2014

New work by Natalie Garyet BA ’10 will be presented at Portland’s Poetry Press Week, an event modeled after the fashion industry’s semiannual Fashion Week showcase.

At Poetry Press Week, poets must use “models.” Instead of reading the work themselves, the poets choose the readers and presentation best suited to their work. Press and publishers in the audience hear poems that are available for publication, and the public can engage with the work in real time. The 12 presenting poets at this year’s event were selected on the basis of their local and national reputations and the strength of their work.

Garyet is managing editor of Tavern Books, a nonprofit poetry press dedicated to poetry in translation and reprints. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in The Grove Review, Phantom Limb, the Lewis & Clark Literary Review, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, and on Oregon Poetic Voices. She is the author of one chapbook, Slow Witness (Berberis Press, 2013).

Poetry Press Week takes place at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center on December 5 and 6. Garyet will present on Saturday, December 6, at 7 p.m.
