LiTFUSE may be cancelled, but it's not over!
We are so sorry to announce that Tieton Arts & Humanities has made the difficult decision to cancel LiTFUSE this year due to financial issues. However, a team of poets and dreamers have united in the spirit of poetry and a love for this community to organize an alternative and free gathering in Yakima on Friday and Saturday, September 22 & 23.
