kate reavey
Kate Reavey's poetry is as much inspired by the rhythms of weather and seasonal change as it is by human relationships. A student of Gary Snyder, Reavey has published two limited edition, letter-pressed chapbooks, "Through the East Window" (Sagittarius) and "Trading Posts" (Tangram). She is co-director of the Foothills Writers Series, founder of the Poetry at the Brewery series in Port Angeles, and adjunct poetry editor of the Pharos, Journal of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Society. Her poetry has appeared in Mothering magazine, the Western Journal of medicine, and on the Lost Mountain Poesia. She and her husba
nd make their home in the foothills of the Olympic Mountains, where Reavey worked five seasons as a park ranger and six years as a college instructor before settling into life with two small children. She is currently at work on a collaboration with another poet (who is also a labor/delivery nurse) on a collection of stories about childbirth.
