No fewer than nine former students of the late Richard Hugo and Madeline DeFrees are publishing new books in 2017: Tom Aslin, David Axelrod, Candace Black, Laurie Blauner, Patricia Clark, Tom Mitchell, Walter Pavlich, Rick Robbins, Lex Runiman, and Robert Wrigley. More than half of these same writers are Lost Horse or Lynx House Press poets. All of the writers here, too, have remained deeply committed to a poetics learned in Missoula: rhythmical complexity, clarity, and humor, while giving voice to the voiceless or marginalized. We propose a reading in gratitude to Missoula, a city that has imprinted itself on our lives and has influenced our work for a generation or more.
