Bethany Lee, author of The Breath Between: An Invitation to Mystery and Joy and Etude for Belonging: Poems for Practicing Courage and Hope from Fernwood Press, lives in Lafayette, OR in a house at the edge of the woods. Her writing is often inspired by the space at the edge of things–her experiences as a hospice harpist, the year she spent traveling by sea, and the deep silence of her Quaker practice.
NOTE: Art at the Cave co-founder Kathi Rick has graciously offered to help us to continue to include our new friends from around the country in the open mic. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than midnight on February 9 to indicate your interest in participating. In the subject line, let us know if you are “Reading” or “Just Listening.” You will receive instructions for how to join the meeting.
