Organizer/Author
The LaborFest Writers Workshop will be reading from their own work at a San Francisco landmark known as City Lights bookstore, and will give a short presentation on the WPA’s Federal Writers’ Project. They will read excerpts from the American Life Histories of the Folklore Project. Writers include Margaret Cooley, Susan Ford, Keith Cooley, Phyllis Holliday, Jerry Path and Alice Rogoff.
Also a writer of the waterfront M.C. Warrior will read.
Born and educated in England, M.C. Warrior spent nearly 35 years working as a seine boat crewman and coast logger in British Columbia. He now works as a researcher for the Laborers’ Union’s Northwest Region Organizing Coalition. He recently came 4th in the Being at Work Poetry Challenge and has been published in numerous Canadian magazines and anthologies.
Tom Wayman will also read. He is widely recognized as one of the leading and lifelong Canadian poets. For many years he has been in the Norton Anthology of North American Poets. He has over twenty publications to his credit. He has never left his workingclass roots, and, in fact, many of his books speak to that experience. He teaches and, last year, was a Fulbright Fellow at the Arizona State University.
