We are delighted to announce the publication of Written Here: The Community of Writers Poetry Review 2017. This annual anthology is made up of poems first written during the 2017 Poetry Workshop, and is available now! Proceeds benefit the Poetry Workshop’s Scholarship Fund.
Each June at the Community of Writers, poets gather in the Sierras to write and share their new work. Participants and teaching staff poets alike write a poem each day and then bring their new draft to workshop the next morning. All of the poems in Written Here 2017 first emerged during the Poetry Workshop week. This edition of Written Here contains a historic first for the Community: it contains work by each and every one of the poets who attended in 2017, as well as poems by each of the staff poets: Francisco Aragón, Forrest Gander, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Sharon Olds, and Gregory Pardlo. The result is an astonishing look into what this generative and supportive week can yield. Congratulations to the volunteer alums who made this happen: Editor, Aaron Graham; managing editor Roger Soffer; photographer, Ananda Lima; and Cody G. Gates, the book’s designer.
