Welcome to Joseph G. Sisson’s website.

Joseph writes in Western Washington. He frequents open mics where he reads his poetry, short stories and chapters from, Down the Road a Piece.

His work runs the gamut from odd yet interesting essays to lighthearted anecdotes and autobiographical commentaries on the meaning of life and human nature.

He is a member of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association, Co-chair of the African American Writers Alliance, Highland Heritage Museum’s 2020 Poetry Soiree host July 25th. His poems, published under his middle name Gaylloyd can be found in Columbia City Gallery, on Mt. Vernon’s nature trail and library, North Cascades Institute and The Poet in Sacramento, California.

Joseph actively promotes writers. In 2018 he hosted Burien’s Humble Vine Poetry Gig open mic. You’ll also find him reading his poetry at other local venues such as West Seattle’s C & P Coffee Company, Columbia City and Green Lake Libraries. 

As a creative thinker, and generally acceptable public speaker and wishful humorist, as well as a licensed motorist but unmotivated auto mechanic loves writing poetry and stories. He and his wife survive Washington’s rainy season reading, indulging in black coffee, and eating lots of dark chocolate.
