Celebrating Art...Giving Writers a Voice 

The Cascade Writers' Group is a community of writers who meet bi-monthly to offer feedback, support and humor.  This year we are publishing Imagine This: An ArtPrize Anthology, which will add a new facet to ArtPrize.  ArtPrize is a community-wide art competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Time named it one of the five not-to-be-missed festivals of the year.  The new anthology adds the art of writing to the wide array of artistic expression celebrated by ArtPrize.
