Sunshower, who retired to South Dakota in 2002, founded the feminist e-journal "Quiet Mountain Essays" to mentor new writers. After conducting a writing workshop at the South Dakota State Penitentiary in 2005, she began the Quiet Mountain Essays Outreach Program, which publishes the poetry of South Dakota inmates. A regional representative for the International Women’s Writing Guild, Sunshower’s poems, articles and essays have appeared in at least 100 newspapers, journals and literary collections. Her reading will be followed by a poetry slam – open to anyone. Poets planning to slam should bring three poems. Prizes will be awarded to slam winners.
