About the Anthology

Spokane Writes: A Poetry & Prose Anthology is a collection of stories, essays, and poems by writers of all ages who live and have lived in the Inland Northwest. This anthology commemorates the 75th anniversary of Spokane County Library District in 2017.

The collection’s theme is “Celebration,” exploring the full range of emotions a celebration can entail: glee and whimsy, but also poignancy, tenderness, even longing, and remorse. Life is not unhappy or happy, black or white—it is all emotions, all colors and shadows. We triumph when we embrace this emotional variety, and Spokane Writes accomplishes this beautifully.
