Poetry Showcase Featuring Clem Starck, Marc Janssen and David Goodrum
Enjoy an evening of poetry from three excellent Northwest poets. The event takes place on Wednesday September 27 at 7:00 at the Old World Deli, 341 SW 2nd St, Corvallis, OR 97333.
Clemens Starck’s first book of poems, Journeyman’s Wages, received the 1996 Oregon Book Award as well as the William Stafford Memorial Poetry Award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association. His next two books — Studying Russian on Company Time (1999) and China Basin (2002) — were also finalists for the Oregon Book Award. Traveling Incognito, a letterpress chapbook from Wood Works in Seattle, appeared in 2004. Rembrandt, Chainsaw, another letterpress chapbook, was published in the fall of 2011. He lives on forty-some acres in the country outside of Dallas, Oregon, in the mid-Willamette Valley.
Marc Janssen has been writing poems since around 1980. Some people would say that was a long time but not a dinosaur. Early decrepitude has not slowed him down much; his verse can be found scattered around the world in places like Pinyon, Slant, Cirque Journal, Off the Coast and Poetry Salzburg also in his book November Reconsidered. Janssen coordinates the Salem Poetry Project- a weekly reading, the occasionally occurring Salem Poetry Festival, and was a nominee for Oregon Poet Laureate.

David A. Goodrum, writer/photographer, lives in Corvallis, Oregon. His first degree from Indiana University included a creative writing thesis of poems. Back writing again, he has recent work, published or forthcoming, in Tar River Poetry, The Inflectionist Review, Passengers Journal, Cathexis Northwest Press, Fireweed, Timberline Review, Triggerfish Critical Review, among others, and a forthcoming chapbook, Vitals and Other Signs of Life, from Finishing Line Press. His photos have graced the covers of several journals, including Cirque. See additional work at www.davidgoodrum.com.
