These works—by award-winning writers and poets finding print for the first time—are a testament to our state’s bountiful creativity and the ways that Washington’s poets transform inspiration into memorable language. And those ways are myriad! Our state has so many poets writing a wide variety of poetries: from long narrative poems and wacky surrealist romps to sprawling-lined diatribes and pithy lyrics that pop! We have stage poets exploring the boundaries of the page, and we have sonneteers stretching the edges of that accentual-syllabic pattern. We also have vibrant slam scenes, wonderful publishers, and many festivals aimed solely at celebrating the power of poetry (in Seattle, Spokane, Tieton, Wenatchee, Ellensburg, Skagit Valley, Bellingham, and many other places). Simply, we have many people invested in exploring and sharing how language matters. This anthology is, I hope, an embodiment of and contribution to that enthusiasm, engagement, and prolific word-energy. In my service at this position, I have heard Washington singing, and that voice is diverse, stirring, and compelling. Herein are some of its songs.

—Tod Marshall, Washington State Poet Laureate, 2016-2018
