About Cosmic Pockets: What if Mary wasn’t really a virgin? Could Jesus be an alien from another planet? How do we know we’re not all living inside of God? Poet and photographer Joann Renee Boswell invites us to travel with her into an encounter with the inconvenient complexities of earth-life and outer space, politics and religion, Bigfoot, feminism, Santa Claus, and spirituality – all tucked inside the Cosmic Pockets of life. Simultaneously whimsical and serious, Cosmic Pockets traces Joann’s personal journey out of evangelical Christianity and into an evolving understanding of faith – what if the universe is out to help us? Into motherhood – do my children exist when I’m not there? And into love – do I have a superpower? Unflinchingly honest and delightfully conflicted, the dense narrative of Cosmic Pockets will complicate your understanding of what the world is and gift you with narrow glimpses of what might be.

Cosmic Pockets is the thrilling manifesto of a goddess aflame with righteous fury at the misogyny and hypocrisy of Christianity’s Madonna-Whore double standard. Her radical feminist vision exposes the unrealistic expectations imposed upon women which results in an internalization of unwarranted shame. Joann Boswell’s heroic verse, sharp wit, and exquisite photos of everyday life become “sacraments of action” illuminating the actual romance to be found in marriage as well as the joys and challenges of motherhood. Marvel as I did at this candid and fearless poet determined “to say all the words, each holy.” Christopher Luna, inaugural Poet Laureate of Clark County, WA and founder of Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic

SATURDAY AFTERNOON EDITION

Join us on Saturday, July 11 for The Work, a poetry writing workshop led by Christopher Luna. The Work is a drop-in poetry writing workshop for beginners as well as more experienced writers.

We will read and discuss poetry, write several new poems, and give each writer feedback on at least one of the drafts composed during the workshop.

Allen with quotation by Jim Johnson 1965

To ease the pain of living. Everything else, drunken dumbshow.”

Before the Sun Rises Retail Final cover copy

In the morning, before the sun rises, before
repeated rumors of rain, random shootings,
foreclosures, extreme weather, earthquakes,
we recall our dreams while drinking coffee
from the highlands of Guatemala.
The owl flies silently over the Italian Basil,
over the damp earth.
– Gwendolyn Morgan

Beyond the Third Door Author Maria Heckinger on AM Northwest

Printed Matter Vancouver congratulates Maria Heckinger, who was interviewed by KATU’s AM Northwest about her memoir Beyond the Third Door, “an incredible story which straddles the fine line between blind luck and unexplained miracles”: https://katu.com/amnw/am-northwest-books-authors/beyond-the-third-door?fbclid=IwAR1OWtg6vO04iGY8Hyp4qHGJbypIJXhKsFkAObmUDAv1eYrf7P0I96_SSHM

Beyond the Third Door_eBook

Maria wrote her memoir in Christopher Luna’s Memoir Writing Class at Clark College. Christopher also later served as an editor on her book.

Here is what Maria had to say about her experience working with Printed Matter Vancouver  co-founder Christopher Luna: “I have wanted to write my memoir since 1984 but never felt I had the skills to tackle such an important task. I signed up for Chris’ memoir class and ended up staying for eight semesters. I didn’t know much about writing, but I do know good teaching, and Chris is the best. He was patient, kind, and encouraging to students of all skill levels. I felt safe and valued in his classes. His skillful teaching helped me overcome my fear of what seemed to be a daunting task. I finished my memoir, Beyond the Third Door, in two years time and then hired Printed Matter Vancouver to edit my manuscript. Both Chris and Toni are extremely knowledgeable and proved to be a valuable resource.”
