Joseph Green Poetry Reading

Green’s other collections include The End of Forgiveness (Floating Bridge Press, 2001), His Inadequate Vocabulary (The Signpost Press, 1986), Deluxe Motel (The Signpost Press, 1991) and Greatest Hits: 1975-2000 (Pudding House Press, 2001).

His poems have appeared in The Bellingham Review, Crab Creek Review, Hubbub, Pearl, The Threepenny Review, Willow Springs, and ZYZZYVA, among others.

Green taught at Lower Columbia College in Longview for about twenty-five years. He continues to work with his wife, Marquita, to produce letterpress-printed broadsides for other poets through

The Peasandcues Press, using woodcuts, linoleum cuts or other visual elements, along with hand-set metal type. At the C.C. Stern Type Foundry in Portland, Ore., he is part of a team striving to preserve the craft of casting the type itself.

He divides much of his time and energy between writing, playing music, and printing poetry broadsides with hand-set metal type at The Peasandcues Press in Longview, Washington.
