Sensational Seafood...Fisher Poets...Big Ideas...Serious Fun


WELCOME TO LONGHOUSE FOOD REVIVAL ALASKA

Based on the 19th century American Chautauqua movement, LongHouse Food Revivals are a series of annual gatherings of thought leaders across the United States. The Revivals are designed to stretch the boundaries of how food stories are told, raise the bar on the nation’s food news agenda and, most of all, foster the community between generations, regions, cultures and media platforms that support innovative work of the highest quality. Produced by cookNscribble, the online educational resource and virtual editorial office for food writers, bloggers and producers, LongHouse Food Revivals are intimate gatherings that are large in vision. No two Revivals are alike. All are serious fun.

Join us at Tutka Bay Lodge for a night of sensational food and poetry under the Alaskan stars. Hosted by longtime food Writer Molly O'Neill, we'll be joined by award-winning poet Carolyn Forche, NPR contributor Kathy Gunst and and fisher poets Erin Fristad and Meezie Hermansen for an evening of unparalleled Alaskan seafood and Alaskan spirit! 

This event is open to the public and includes transportation to and from Homer. Food and poetry lovers of all stripes are encouraged to join us for this one-of-a-kind evening.

PRESENTING POETS AND SPEAKERS 

LongHouse Food Revival is proud to present some of the leading voices in food writing and poetry. Original presentations and readings by these leading authors and local fisher poets are sure to make this coming together of food, poetry and ideas a rare and delectable treat! 

Molly O’Neill is a longtime food writer and bestselling author. She is the author of the memoir Mostly True: Family, Food and Baseball and four cookbooks including The New York Cookbook and One Big Table. A longtime journalist and food columnist with the New York Times Magazine, she was the host of the PBS series Great Food and edited the Library of America’s American Food Writing. O’Neill is the founder of cookNscribble, the online classroom, resource, and community for food writers, as well as LongHouse Food Revival. 

  

Carolyn Forché is a bestselling American poet and memoirist. A passionate home cook, Forché is a regular contributor to Saveur Magazine, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Nation, and Mother Jones and is a professor and the Director of the Lannan Center for Poetry at Georgetown University. Known as the “poet of witness,” Forché’s work focuses on the intersection of personal narrative, politics, human experience and culture. Her books include Gathering the Tribes, Blue Hour and more. Currently at work on a memoir, Forché is thrilled to return to Alaska, where she lived and taught early in her career.

 

Kathy Gunst served as an early editor of Food & Wine magazine and is the author of 14 cookbooks, including her latest, Notes from a Maine Kitchen. As the "resident chef" of NPR’s Here & Now, Kathy records award-winning radio shows on location throughout the world and combines an intuitive and deeply engaged interview style with a well-honed sense of the power of sound to create must-listen audio stories. Her work regularly appears in national publications including O Magazine, Epicurious, The Washington Post and more. 

  

Meezie Hermansen was born and raised in Alaska. A lifelong Cook Inlet East Side Setnetter, she has worked the family site near Humpy Point every summer since learning to walk. Meezie currently works as a small animal veterinarian in Soldotna but takes time off to return to beach camp every salmon season. Writing poetry about her experiences dealing with the physically demanding work, nature’s elements, and the lighter moments of a lifetime spent setnetting has led her to present at various local events as well as the annual Fisher Poet Gathering in Astoria.

 

Erin Fristad survived fifteen years as a deckhand on a wide array of vessels and adventures. She chased herring near Togiak; crab off the Columbia River; salmon more places than she can remember; and for five years pursued fish in the name of science. Eventually, the tide brought her to Port Townsend, Washington where she continues to write, teach and work as Director of West Coast Strategic Relations and Partnerships at Goddard College. Erin was a subject in the documentary film, FISHER POETS. Her poems have been published in anthologies and journals including: Rosebud, americas review, The Blue Collar Review, Hanging Loose, The Seattle Review and Working the Woods, Working the Sea: An Anthology of Northwest Writing, New Poets of the American West and Hooked! True Stories of Obsession, Love, and Death From Alaska’s Commercial Fishermen and Women. Her Poem, “Advice to Female Deckhands” was included on the Salmon Nation Artists Project CD. Erin is a regular performer at the Fisher Poet Gathering and is grateful for its community of generous and tenacious sea folk.
