Craig Andrews reads at the Rainshadow this month



Invite a friend!  We appreciate your support.


This month's featured Peninsula writer is Craig Andrews. A prolific poet, Craig's empassioned (sic) readings are rich with images, emotion and place.  


Andrews is a graduate of the University of California in Religious Studies. He spent ten years in a Taoist Monastery and has taught Meditation and Yoga. He worked for thirteen years as a professional musician, sang Gregorian Chants for nine years, played in an Indoneasian Gamelan, and worked off and on as a Bartender, or truck driver whenever needed. After coming to the Olympic Peninsula, he made his living as a Case Manager for the Developmentally Disabled and also as a Mental Health Counselor.


He is retired now, living with his very patient wife (who is also a Mental Health Counselor), dogs, cats, and geese.


He is a deep believer in the transformative power of the written and spoken word.


Craig's reading is followed by five-minute open mike readings. Writers are invited to put their name in to be drawn for reading position. This venue is intended for poetry, fiction, memoir and biography. Additional guidelines are available through This event is sponsored by Writers on the Spit. Admission is free.
