We began Clover, A Literary Rag in the Summer of 2010. Norman Green, my friend and partner in Clover, and I decided to publish twice a year. We started with our base of contributors from the Independent Writers’ Studio — 17 contributors counting Norman and me. Thirteen editions later we have published a total of 234 writers — 11 from international locations. About half of those writers come from Washington State; around 40 from Whatcom County.
To see who we are and how we have grown — join us at Village Books — Sunday, February 11 at 4 PM. This is a Literature Live event at Village Books and where we have celebrated each edition of Clover.
