Hosted by Eastern Washington University, creative writing faculty from area colleges and universities will read from new works of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. This event gathers and showcases writers who teach-- those who not only work to carve out space for their own creative work, but who spend significant time working with students and inspiring them to write and read. Author and EWU professor Natalie Kusz will emcee, and the EWU Distinguished Alumni Award will presented to Karen Babine.

Participating writers and teachers include Polly Buckingham, Jeff Dodd, Jonathan Johnson, Claire McQuerry, Rachel Toor, and others.
