POETRY: Poetry, music and artwork converge at Presence Studio

“Stories We Must Tell: An Evening of Poetry, Music and Artwork” showcases five Bellingham poets and performers — Matthew Brouwer, Carol McMillan, Kevin Murphy, Tsena Paulson and Betty Scott — who will mix the muse, music and art at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 30, at Presence Studio, 1412 Cornwall Ave.

Loosely stitched around the theme “Stories We Must Tell,” each poet will share pieces on matters both urgent and timeless. Bellingham visual artist Jasmine Jean will further enrich the evening with her original works of art.
