Christopher J. Jarmick is a Seattle Area writer and a former Los Angeles TV producer who curates and hosts monthly poetry readings and special events. He has performed his own poetry at numerous venues (mostly on the West Coast) for many years and has given lectures, been part of writer conference panels, and given workshops. Other kind souls have published several things he's written (essays, reviews of poems, interviews, stories, editorials) in local and national magazines, newspapers, literary journals and online. His online film reviews have over 3 million page views.


"When a poem inspires you to wander down to your local inlet to view the spoonbills, herons and pied stilts, then it's not unreasonable to say the poet has made a connection! Glint is a dazzling three-part collection
containing poems of place, nature and family. Lois Parker Edstrom ferments, shapes and bakes words, creating an optimal environment for every poem to develop and flourish. Only when it's reached perfection,
she presents it to us, often with a subtle spiciness which teases the palate at the end of the tasting. Filled with humour, delicacy, soulfulness, and boldness, this collection is worthy of world-wide recognition."
--Ruth Arnison, QSM, curator of Poems in the Waiting Room, New Zealand

"The precise language of these poems is astounding as it works through both sensation in nature and the soul. This poet melds nature, family, and surprising imagery into a unique equation that is both harsh and
subtle. I feel blindsided in a perfect way when reading this collection; this is work that sticks hard."
--Amy MacLennan, author of The Body, A Tree
