What’s it like to publish locally, you ask? We’ve put together a panel of local writers to discuss the local publishing scene. The panel will feature Ellen Welcker, Tim Greenup, Simeon Mills, Kathryn Smith, and Ben Cartwright. This discussion will be moderated by Thom Caraway.


Scablands Books

Founded by fiction writer Sharma Shields, Scablands Books is a fledgling boutique press based in Spokane. Scablands Books aims to publish strange, smart, innovative writing, with an emphasis on writers from the Inland Northwest. The published titles reflect the uncanny and unique landscape of the Channeled Scablands region. In 2016, Scablands Books published Ram Hands by Ellen Welcker, Without Warning by Tim Greenup, and Butcher Paper by Simeone Mills.


Sage Hill Press

Sage Hill Press was launched in 2004 by Thom Caraway, then a graduating MFA candidate at Eastern Washington University. Collections have come out from Mike Dockins, Alan Botsford, Marci Rae Johnson, Jeffrey Tucker, and Ben Cartwright. Sage Hill has also published Railtown Almanac, a Spokane poetry anthology, a follow-up prose anthology, and All We Can Hold, an anthology of poems on motherhood.

Rock & Sling

The word “witness” means to testify: to tell the truth. To testify is an act of responsibility as well as an expression of faith. Rock & Sling is a literary journal of witness, published twice a year at Whitworth University in Spokane. Founded in 2004 by Susan Cowger, it came to Whitworth in 2010 under the direction of Thom Caraway as Editor-in-chief. Rock & Sling is a member of the CLMP and distributed nationwide by Ubiquity Distribution.
