Happy Birthday Raymond Carver

Today marks what would’ve been Raymond Carver’s 75th birthday. We invite you to tell us: how will you celebrate?

We always enjoy sitting down with a collection of his stories or poems, but doing so this Saturday will feel extra special. The editor’s favorite is Fires: Essays, Poems, Stories.

Tell us yours and send us a TweetFacebook message, or leave a comment on this blog post. Let us know how Raymond Carver shaped your fiction or poetry, or perhaps your life.

If you’re in Port Angeles, WA, there’ll be a special event commemorating Ray, with Tess Gallagher in attendance.

Happy Birthday, Ray. Thanks for everything.
