Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

“In the News”

The Poeming Pigeon Literary Journal out of Beaverton, OR,  has devoted its 2018 issue to news-worthy poetry.  Two pieces of my work are included, both based on true stories from The Olympian earlier this year. The first one is titled, “Ex-Army Ranger Saves Teen on Hwy 12” and is from the point of view of a vet witnessing a terrible accident. His quick action, based on combat experiences, saved a young man’s life. The second poem is “Homeless Shelter Loses Host Church, Closes,” and is from the perspective of a homeless man who had spent cold nights in this sanctuary — until he couldn’t any more. This is a very powerful anthology of diverse voices on many contemporary topics!
