WA 129 is a collection of poems by poets from around Washington State. The anthology, published by Sage Hill Press, includes amateur poets alongside acclaimed writers like Sherman Alexie and Tom Robbins. Over two thousand poems were submitted for the project, and the selected poems selected will be shared through two mediums: a printed anthology (with one poem for every year of Washington statehood, hence “129”) and online (utilizing e-book and recording technologies). The book will be launched on April 13th at a launch party at the state capitol in Olympia; the digital collection of poems will begin in late April or early May. Check back here for more details.
