Poetry of Place


The classic is the local fully realized, 
words marked by a place.
—William Carlos Williams

Windfall: A Journal of Poetry of Place features poetry which captures the spirit of place as part of the essence of the poem. We particularly emphasize poetry which is written in the Pacific Northwest and which is attentive to the relationships between people and the landscapes in which we live. —Bill Siverly & Michael McDowell, editors
