John Edge wrote in the bay area haunted City Lights Books, and North Beach coffee houses. After dropping out of poetry for decades, in 2007 Edge MC’d a choral event at Chemeketa, read some of his poetry and rediscovered the joy of it. He said, in the forward to his first collection of poems, In My 60’s, this led to a rededication to his poetry, as did participation in a Stayton poetry group and “…felt like coming home.”
