Books

By Lee Harrington

When his first grade teacher encouraged Lee to learn the differences between poetry and prose, they had no idea the monster they were creating. His first published poetry appeared in middle school poetry zines, followed by street artists anthologies, collections at his college, then turned to his own early publications (of both poetry and photojournalism inspired prose) in University as part of his BA from Evergreen State College.

Lee now has a variety of published and unpublished work that has filtered out across the world in book, short story, magazine article, poetry, video and audio interview and prose form. He loves provoking individuals into thinking for themselves, while helping those who are already thinking for themselves adventure into the more challenging corners of their own being. The veil between his work as a visual artist and as an author is oftentimes blurred, and he likes it that way.
