Welcome to Be! Eugene Be! Creative
Life long artist & author of poetry collections, including Wild Rose: & Other Poems Sung by the Window.
For my entire life I have known that I was an artist and a writer; I could never deny the truth to myself or to others, but I lived a dual life. It took many years for my passion & my skill to be brought together - for me to decide that I had to follow my dream no matter what & no matter where it would lead me.
The breakthrough in my life started with sobriety. Although I had been involved in the literary arts scene since first moving here, it was during the pandemic when I began thinking of ways that I could help nurture the already vibrant community of writers in Tacoma.
Thus began the journey which eventually led to the Voices of Tacoma: A Gathering of Poets.

“Wild Rose is truly a lovely ode - beautifully done. I really like how B. Eugene B. let himself create multiple iterations of the poem, focusing on different aspects of his mother's life and memory.”
