When I realized Helen would be celebrating its 5 year anniversary, I knew I had to do something special. The Anniversary Issue was an obvious idea, but I wanted to do something for our staff who have worked so hard in supporting Helen and helping it grow.
Then I began to consider how many other ways we could support Nevada and the literary community of Clark County, and it became clear to me that we should have a subdivision to offer more opportunities for the staff as well as for local writers and poets.
Our first digital anthology is one that celebrates our staff. Most of the work selected has been previously published in other places, one even on YouTube. It gives people a better idea of who we are together as well as separately. Helen's staff is a diverse group and we love it that way.
Please enjoy the pieces selected here. They will inspire you, make you think, make you laugh, and make you wonder what you may have missed in Helen.
