The FisherPoets Gathering, an Oregon-based annual poetry event with contributions about the occupational folklore of fishing, will be live-streamed on YouTube this year on February 25-26, 2022.

The schedule is posted on the FisherPoets website, from which the livestream is accessible. It will also be available on YouTube in the Friday Night Performance Live Stream and Saturday Night Performance Live Stream

The evening lineup will be in two sessions each on Friday and Saturday from 6:00–7:30 p.m.and 8:00–9:30 p.m., plus a Saturday afternoon set from 4:00–5:00 p.m. in tribute to the last Jon Campbell of Rhode Island, who passed this year.

Last year’s live stream performances are still archived on the FisherPoets website.

These include:

  • FisherPoetry: An Occupational Tradition,” in which Jon Broderick shares some perspective and context on his two poems that follow, “How to Tell a Good One” and “How to Write an Occupational Folklife Poem.”
  • En Route to Togiak,” in which Moe Bowstern writes about herring fishing and a long trip from Kodiak Island to Togiak Bay, across the Shelikof Strait, through Unimak Pass and across the eastern edge of the Bering Sea.
