September 2, 2020: Jen Lynn
Jen Lynn is a student at Central Washington University, pursuing a BA in Teaching English/Language Arts, who recently, by divine intervention, fell headlong into the poetry abyss. She skillfully navigates unmarked roads at tumultuous speeds as mom to five and driving instructor to teens. She is a member of the Yakima Coffeehouse Poets, is involved with Inland Poetry’s annual poetry prowl, and is prone to wandering towards kittens in the wilderness, always picking up buttons at inappropriate times.

December 2, 2020: Liz Crain
For Liz Crain, a trained sociologist, these are most interesting times, and documenting through her writings has helped bring context and reassurance in this age of insanity. Liz has experienced life on a verity of "stages", from rural Oklahoma to Manhatten, coast to coast, and many other international adventures. Now stewarding a farmstead in Duvall,WA, she spends much of her time cultivating restorative agriculture and animal husbandry. When not mucking the coop, planting native growth, or wrangling sheep and goats, Ms. Crain works on her social reflections in short stories, poetry, and collage. Her passions include connecting people to the natural world through naturalist exploration, mycology, and hunting conservation. She is a co-founder of “The Giraffe”, Duvall’s number one zine- promoting local creative arts. Her published work is scarce, owing to her belief in the fleeting moment of creative “genius”, and a need for impermanence in life. Liz’s legacy can be viewed in the landscape she tends, and reflected in her treatment of others.
