Best Living Idaho Writer

Anthony Doerr

Readers' Picks

The race for the state's top writer was so exciting. First and second place went back and forth so many times, we think it gave us whiplash. In the end, it was the state's former writer-in-residence who came out on top. Maybe next year, instead of voting, we should hold a write-off between contending authors. They could all show up armed with their best metaphors, character quirks and assorted literary devices and battle it out in a literary death match where a single victor and a few dangling clauses would be all that remained.

Second Place: Alan Heathcock,

Third Place: Tim Woodward,
