Editors Irene Cooper and Ellen Santasiero discuss PLACED, a composition of writings based on place and phenomena unique to Central Oregon. Contributors from the anthology share a reading of their pieces.

The only thing Ellen Santasiero likes better than making essays, memoirs, collages, plays, fictions, and safe spaces for learning is making them with others. Her work has appeared in The Stay Project,, The Sun, and High Desert Journal, among others, and is forthcoming in 7x7. She teaches literature and writing at OSU-Cascades. Check her out at

Irene Cooper writes poems, reviews, essays, and fiction. She works and teaches in community in Central Oregon, and co-edits The Stay Project. Committal, a speculative spy-fy novel about family, was published in 2020. Her debut full-length book of poetry, spare change, is forthcoming from Finishing Line Press in March 2021. Learn more at
