Writers and Writing on Whidbey
The Whidbey Island Writers Association, the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts and Hedgebrook have made Whidbey island a rich and vibrant community for writers. It’s a proud legacy for our island, and WhidbeyAIR is happy to be a small part of it.
This January, in association with the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts ~ Master of Fine Arts program and Graywolf Press, WhidbeyAIR will be welcoming Tess Gallagher, and other writers into our studio to record. Another great opportunity to boost our commitment to share the work of, and promote, local and regional writers through the WhidbeyAIR studio, stream and podcasts.
Tess Gallagher will be on Whidbey participating in the NILA MFA Program. Our thanks to Stephanie Barbe’ Hammer and Janet Buttenwieser for taking the time to organize bookings and permissions for the NILA Writers Series at WhidbeyAIR. More thanks to Tess Gallagher and Graywolf Press for providing permissions and scheduled time to record selected poems from Tess’ new book Midnight Lantern. We look forward to January.
