Frances McCue is poet, writer, arts instigator, and professor. She's the co-writer and co-producer of Where the House Was, a feature documentary about gentrification and poetry. Her poetry books read as novels, taking us through the life of a stenographer who refuses to take dictation (The Stenographer's Breakfast), or the world of Marrakesh where a tragedy ensues (The Bled). Timber Curtain traces Seattle’s Hugo House building into redevelopment. McCue is engaged in new literary start-up: Pulley Press, a poetry imprint.
