Gumball Poetry machine The Raymond Carver Writing Festival takes place every May in Clatskanie, Oregon, the birthplace of Raymond Carver. More information about the festival can be found at raymondcarverwritingfestival.org. It is thanks to the festival that this revival issue has been created.

This issue was hand-picked by Ben Parzybok from regional poets for the festival. The machine will be in the Clatskanie library, and then part of the festival.
