Local Voices has been created specifically for the 12th Festival of Pacific Arts, which Guam is hosting this year. The Guam Fest Pac Publications Committee seeks to expand opportunities for local writers to publish their work as well as increase Pacific Island literature and literacy in our region.

This publication project was made possible with a grant from the Gannett Foundation and the Pacific Daily News.
