Ten years ago, Writing for Peace began with an idea about the power of creative writing to spark empathy in the minds of both the reader and the writer. We challenged young writers to harness that power, and then began collecting work from writers all over the world in our literary journal, DoveTales. We’re celebrating during the month of January with 50% off all our books (while supplies last). Use the Promotion code, YEAR10.
Tonight, producer Juniper Moon welcomes poet Derek Sheffield to our second Sunday LIVE of the New Year. “I’m looking forward to hearing Derek read from his new book Not for Luck and catch up on what creative adventures are on the horizon,” says Juniper.
Derek Sheffield’s collection, Not for Luck, was selected by Mark Doty for the Wheelbarrow Books Poetry Prize. His other books include Through the Second Skin, finalist for the Washington State Book Award, and Dear America: Letters of Hope, Habitat, Defiance, and Democracy, which he coedited with Simmons Buntin and Elizabeth Dodd. He lives on the eastern slopes of the Cascades in Washington and is the poetry editor
