Including both narrative and experimental poetry from 12 renowned and emerging authors from the Portland area, Motionless strives to capture the timelessness of its subject through an incredible diversity of poetic voices, many of whom are leading members of the Northwest’s thriving literary community. The stunning works of Oregon Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen and multi-award winning poet and Attic Institute founder David Biespiel weave between poems from up-and-coming names. Combining intimate portraits with conceptual questions, Motionless from the Iron Bridge clears a unique path from which readers can approach the many faces of the classic bridge metaphor.

Local authors represented in this anthology include: David Biespiel, David Cooke, Chris Cottrell, A. Molotkov, Paulann Petersen, Katharine Quince, Sam Roderick Roxas-Chua, Leah Stenson, Coleman Stevenson, Mark S.R. Struzan, Carrie-Ann Tkaczyk, and John Sibley Williams.
