Environews: Help Get Red Rock Stories Off the ground

By Amy Brunvand

Torrey House Press is raising funds to publish a chapbook of stories about Utah’s public lands solicited from well-known regional writers. Copies of this book, Red Rock Stories, will be given to legislators and their staff in order to demonstrate support for public lands conservation.

The book is modeled on a collection, Testimony: Writers Speak on Behalf of Utah Wilderness that was published in 1996. The new chapbook is the seed of a larger project called Red Rock Stories, an online publication for writers to publish and share creative responses to Utah’s inspiring landscape.

Stephen Trimble and Kirsten Allen, who are spearheading Red Rock Stories, hope to expand the project into workshops and a growing community of writers.

Donations can be sent to Torrey House Press, 2806 Melony Drive, SLC, UT 84124. Identify it as a contribution to Red Rocks Stories. Torrey House Press is a 501(c)3 so contributions are tax deductible.
