Strictly East

poetry news for the far East Bay

The site is free to all who want it...but if it gives you value, if it helps your life, consider sending a few dollars to compensate the poor slob who puts it all together every month! As little as $3 can make a difference.

Special items — too Late to print


I just got word tonight from the Solano Land Trust that due to weather and unpredictable conditions at the Patwino Park, we need to postpone the Sunday, March 19th Hike and Write.
We have all appreciated the rain and now we need to respect the conditions it has caused. I know we all respect the land and know it is best to go when all is safe and we can enjoy the natural beauty.
It is NOW scheduled for: SUNDAY, APRIL 2- 1:00pm -4:00pm. Everything else is the same, just a change in date.
Please email me with questions.
