Astoria's Fisher Poets to Dock on Central Oregon Coast

(Newport, Oregon) - FisherPoets On The Edge, a three day celebration of poetry, storytelling and songs of the sea and its harvest, will be held on a three day holiday weekend, January 16 - 18, 2010, in Newport, Oregon. The City of Newport, which calls itself "the friendliest city on the central Oregon coast," is hoping to inspire the imaginations of FisherPoets and fans to return to the coastal community of Newport, where NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has recently announced plans to relocate its home port.

The Yaquina Bay Bridge is gateway to a working fishing port where visitors shop, dine and find oceangoing excursions. Across the bay is the world renowned Oregon Coast Aquarium and Hatfield Marine Science Center. Visitors can shop for eclectic marine treasures or enjoy famous brews with a steaming cup of chowder while viewing the ocean across Newport's miles of sandy beaches. A glimpse of a whale spout, the salty smell of ocean, and foghorn echoes in the mist will hook visitors as nationally known FisherPoets and aspiring FisherPoets share their passion for the sea and its bounty.

Events begin Saturday, January 16, with films that explore fish related issues, the ocean and its harvest. The films will be shown from 1 to 5 pm at the Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye Street, with free admission, coffee, tea, hot chocolate and popcorn. A schedule of the movies is available on the FisherPoets website at www.fisherpoets.writersontheedge.org.

The main event, taking place Saturday evening at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, will feature the popular fisherpoets reviewed in last March's New York Times article, which said: "Even a bad day of fishing, it seems, can produce a decent rhyme." The main event is from 7 to 10 pm at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, 2820 SE Ferry Slip Road, in the South Beach area of Newport.

Featured authors include Jon Broderick, Jay Speakman, Geno Leech, Dave Densmore, Clem Starck, Moe Bowstern, and Gene "Red Hawk" Davenport of the Lakota tribe. Fisherpoet-singer-songwriters James & Julz Kasner will begin the show with a performance in the Aquarium lobby. Visitors can stroll around and enjoy the Aquarium as food and libations are served by Local Ocean Seafoods in the lobby restaurant and near performance spaces. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door, available through the website at: www.fisherpoets.writersontheedge.org and at the Aquarium ticket office.

The FisherPoets Open Mic and Hearty Brunch Buffet will be held from 9:30 am to 12:30 p.m. on  Sunday, January 17 at the Yaquina Bay Yacht Club, 750 SE Bay Boulevard, Newport. The open mic of poetry, song and storytelling invites everyone who enjoys fishing and the marine environment to participate. There are two rules: It must be original material and can be no longer than five minutes. Local fisherman Bob Eder will emcee the open mic. Admission is free; the brunch buffet is $10. Food and libations by Cafe Mundo. Advance tickets are available through the FisherPoets On The Edge website at www.fisherpoets.writersontheedge.org.

Newport's Yaquina Bay

On Monday, January 18 (Martin Luther King Jr. National Holiday), the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology will host a "Fishing for Poetry" writing workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The workshop will be taught by Clem Starck, an Oregon Book award-winning poet featured on Saturday night. This event will be held at the Yaquina Bay Yacht Club, 750 SE Bay Boulevard, Newport, with morning and afternoon snacks provided. The workshop fee of $135 includes a ticket for Sunday morning's Hearty Brunch Buffet. To register, contact Sitka Center at www.sitkacenter.org or call: 531-994-5485.
