Book Release & Reading: Try This at Home

For a little more than a year, a smallish group of writers have met monthly beside the “electronic hearth” of Spark Central in downtown Spokane. The Diverse Voices Writing Group has since collected its creative efforts into the chapbook anthology, Try This at Home, with proceeds designated to support the new Carl Maxey Center in East Central Spokane. Writers featured in the collection include black poet and Power 2 the Poetry founder Bethany Montgomery, Jewish poet Jazlyn Jacobs and group facilitator Jackie McCowen Rose. In the introduction, Rose reflects on the group’s goals: “To a writer, the only thing more terrifying than a blank page may be offering his/her/their work to unknown and often unseen readers… Courage is required to offer the work, which is itself uncovered and vulnerable, especially for those whose voices have been drowned out by mainstream voices for so long.”
