The FisherPoets Gathering is an authentic, creative celebration of life in the commercial fishing industry. A hundred fisher poets from coasts near and far share original stories, songs and poetry with each other. Enjoy storytelling, workshops, a self-guided cannery tour film and visual arts. It will be held from Feb. 28 - March 1. Numerous venues throughout downtown Astoria will be hosting FisherPoet Gathering events, so check the website for locations at www.fisherpoets.org.
