The November edition of Fishtrap Fireside will feature poet Ester Bentz, special guest Renee Mitchell and long-time Fishtrap champion Janie Tippett.

It will be 7 p.m.. Friday, Nov. 3, at Fishtrap, 400 E. Grant St., Enterprise.

An open mic follows where audience members can get up and share their stories.

Bentz is the penname and alter ego of Cathy Sterbentz, a perennial, revolving-door resident of Wallowa County and the proprietress of Aunt Ester’s Home for Unpublished Poets, for which there is a seven-year waiting list.

Mitchell is best described as a Creative Revolutionist who expresses herself through poetry, storytelling, grant writing, teaching and creating multimedia experiences. She spent 25 years as a newspaper journalist and is most known as a Metro columnist for The Oregonian, where she was nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize.

Janie Tippett was a columnist for “Agritimes NW” for 31 years, is the author of “Four Lines a Day: The Life and Times of an Imnaha Ranch Woman,” has been published in anthologies of Western writers and is a freelance writer. She is a fourth generation rancher, mother of four, stepmother to three, grandmother and great grandma.

The community is encouraged to attend these events and enjoy light refreshments.
