The Changing Times is “a touring newspaper uncovering seldom-heard histories, examining biases and celebrating expression.” Started by itinerant artist/designer Corbin LaMont in 2017, each monthly issue of TCT is based in a different place, and for month 10 I was fortunate enough to be able to collaborate with Corbin on the issue for my home at the time, Palouse, WA.

“Poems for Firefighters” is the title of my daily haiku practice reflecting on every day I worked on a wildfire during the summer of 2018. All poems from this series were written by headlamp in my tent at basecamp on the Buckshot Fire in Mattawa, WA and the Crescent Fire in Twisp, WA.

“Summer in Palouse” is the title of my series of haikus written while living with Mary Welcome in Palouse, WA from May -> November of 2018.

Issue 10 also features various cover jacket illustrations by myself as well as my 8-year-old neighbor Maggie.
