Alicia Hokanson’s first collection of poems, Mapping the Distance, was selected by Carolyn Kizer for the King County Arts Commission publication prize. Two chapbooks from Brooding Heron Press are Insistent in the Skin and Phosphorous. Now retired after a long career teaching English, she devotes her time to writing, tutoring, reading, and political activism in Seattle and on Waldron Island, Washington.
