Workshop Graduates prosper with their Poetry-only Bookstore

When two Iowa Writers' Workshop graduates, J.W. Marshall and Christine Deavel, opened their Poetry-only bookstore 'Open Books: A Poem Emporium' in the Seattle area twelve years ago, they never suspected this much success. "Open Books seems a throwback to another era, maybe another century. All of the ledgers are still hand-written, one of the personable co-owners is always stationed at the front desk. The one concession to modernity is the store's rudimentary Web site (openpoetrybooks.com) that lists store information and events and some featured titles." Read their story here: SeattlePI.com
