Thomas Brush received 2009 GAP Award funding to pay for paper, printing, postage, and entry fees to various publishers. The nearly finished project, titled Oaxaca – A book of Poetry, is a new collection of poems that cover various subjects from the streets of Seattle, to the deserts of Mexico, to reflections on work, and love and loss of family. Thomas’ view on poetry is that it is a living, viable art that should be maintained. He is the recipient of the 2011 Blue Lynx Prize for poetry from Lynx House Press (Spokane).
