Publications notice & news from Rayn Roberts

Hello Poets & Poetry Lovers,

I thought I’d share something that makes most poets happy. Several of my poems were accepted for publication recently, “Clear Water” & “After the Pulse Murders 2016” will appear in Seattle’s Raven Chronicles Anthology, “Take a Stand: Art Against Hate” out this fall. The Seattle Star published two poems adding to several already there. The poem “Last Oracle Over the Sea” will appear in the CAPS /Calling All Poets Series Anthology out of New Paltz , New York & “Eagle Bowl” was accepted by the Seattle journal “Chrysanthemum” edited by Koon Woon.  Washington State Poet Laureate, Claudia Castro Luna took “The Bubble of Seattle” for her Poetry Grid. I’m honored to be included in her project.  It’s now @


I hope you get a chance to enjoy some of them & keep in touch as the year progresses. I invite you all to Green Lake Public Library for the monthly reading 4-5:30 pm every second Saturday of every month.  The reading was a lot of fun last time.  The group sat in a circle and shared fine work.  No theme, just a lot of good poetry.  The features for Sat. Aug 10, 2019 are Sierra Golden whose book “The Slow Art” was recently nominated for a Washington State Book Award & a strong member of the African American Writers AllianceGaylloyd Sisson who writes fiction & poems too.

There’s always an open mic!
