This yearly anthology has been published since 2011 and is an Inlandia tradition, with contributors from sixteen of Inlandia’s creative writing workshops in the 2020 edition. Packed with over 300 pages of stories, poems, and essays, 2020 Writing from Inlandia explores the experience of being alive through memoir, food writing, reflections on the COVID pandemic, and more. Participants will read their work aloud in reflection of the myriad challenges – and rewards – of being human. Don’t miss it!

    In memory of Candace Shields, Morris Mendoza, and CelenaDiana Bumpus.

    All 2020 Inlandia workshops were supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and the California Arts Council, a state agency.
