(First) books of poems by Craig Santos Perez and Meg Withers.

A group of us just read and presented design talks at Evergreen State University in Olympia, Washington (Leonard Schwartz's class) and at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon (organized by Jules Boykoff and Kaia Sand, among others). The reception was warm and engaged. Readers included Tiare Picard, Craig Perez, Deborah Meadows, Lissa Wolsak, Lisa Kanae and Susan M. Schultz. Approximately 200 people showed up for the reading at Pacific University and many dozens more for Gaye Chan and Lian Litvin's design talk. You can see photos at the “friends of Tinfish Press” facebook page.

This past April we sponsored a reading by Linh Dinh and Naomi Long in Honolulu. In early November, we celebrated Tinfish #17 with a reading in the UH English department.

We invite you to buy Tinfish books. They make wonderful gifts for lovers of poetry and design, especially. To buy a Tinfish book is also to support the making of more fine books.

We intend to publish more fine books in the coming year, and to offer readings here (Hawai`i) and elsewhere. So we also invite you to make tax deductible donations to Tinfish, either on the website or at our address:
