A companion anthology for introductory/intermediate-level courses in Creative Writing (Fiction and Poetry), and for courses in Introduction to Literature, Literature and the Humanities, and Twentieth Century Literature. Compiled by the editors of the award-winning Clackamas Literary Review, this anthology of twenty short stories and fifty poems gives students of writing and literature the opportunity to read from a broad range of styles, perspectives, and generations spanning the last century. Unique in both approach and content, the anthology 1) is not separated by genre, as are most literature anthologies available today (but rather loosely comingles poems and stories according to gradually developing themes; 2) places canonized writing, and some lesser known yet accomplished writing, together under the same cover; and 3) is unencumbered by apparatus, to give instructors the freedom to use their own pedagogical approaches to teach the stories and poems.

JEFF KNORR: A specialist in both technical writing and poetry at Clackamas Community College, Jeff coordinates the department's efforts in computer-assisted instruction. Jeff and his co-author Tim Schell have also launched the Clackamas Literary Review, a prestigious national literary magazine, which offers a contest and poetry, fiction, and essays by leading writers. TIM SCHELL: Committed to promoting writing, Tim also created the Clackamas Literary Review and serves as co-editor with Jeff Knorr. He specializes in the teaching-and writing-of fiction at Clackamas. He has won the prestigious Martindale Prize for Long Fiction in 1993 and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize for a story published in 1995.
