A TORCHES N’ PITCHFORKS PRINT ANTHOLOGY


Edited by Jim Churchill-Dicks In its twelfth year, torches n’ pitchforks literary journal continues to hunt for voices that might otherwise go silent.

They are torchlight piercing the darkness

TEACHER EDITION!

SPONSORED BY THE OREGON WRITING PROJECT


For several years in Central Oregon, a chapter of the Oregon Writing Project met with teachers of multiple grade levels to teach innovative writing strategies in both their curriculum and in their own personal writing. What resulted was a beautiful combination of work from local teacher authors throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Established in 2008 by Jim Churchill-Dicks, torches n’ pitchforks seeks to highlight the best writing by both students and teachers in the Pacific Northwest; work that explores the depth of image and emotion while exploring the relationship between form and content.
