"TumbleWords, an anthology of works by 72 western writers, is the result of a Western States Arts Federation project developed to bring writers and their audiences together in direct and unforgettable ways. From 1992 to 1994 poets, novelists, short-story writers, and essayists from Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming gave readings and workshops in places where audiences have little, if any, access to contemporary writers. This anthology is a permanent record of the words spoken at those first TumbleWords readings."--BOOK JACKET.
"TumbleWords ... was conceived as a community-based project which would bring writers to read their works for local audiences"--P. xv.
