Skagit River Anthology : / Skagit Valley Writers League.
The Skagit Valley Writers League is a northwest Washington organization that has drawn creative people together for more than six decades. They gather in search of inspiration, encouragement, and friendship, and they cover a wide spectrum. Some seek to sell their first articles or poems or perhaps even their first book. Most, however, already are publishing veterans. Some, in fact, have written books that sell hundreds of thousands of copies. As members of the Writers league, these people come together not as competitors but as colleagues, to share hard-won professional skills and to boost each other's opportunities for success. The title of this book celebrates the river that dramatically impacts the culture of the place where most of our writers live, lovely northwest Washington. The title also serves as a metaphor that speaks to the quality of the writers whose work appears here. The Skagit is not widely known outside of Washington state despite the fact it is the third-largest river on the entire west coast of the lower 48. It is the only one in that area that produces viable populations of all five of the species of Pacific Salmon that are indigenous to North America, and it is the major contributor of salmon to Washington's iconic Puget Sound.
