Sydney Stevens in the Media
Sydney’s articles and stories often appear in local and regional magazines and newspapers. As with her books, themes center on Pacific County history, Oysterville, and the lives of past generations.
“I love the first hand accounts and oral histories that tell us how ordinary people lived, what their day-to-day experiences were, and how they interacted with one another and with their world,” Sydney says. “Almost without exception, those ‘old-timers’ were strong characters with definite opinions, and most had a wonderful sense of fun about them. I really enjoy ‘getting to know them’ and sharing what I find out.”
Sydney’s articles appear frequently in the Chinook Observer and may be found online at www.chinookobserver.com or by requesting specific back issues. She has also written three series for the Observer:
- • Ghost Stories
- • North Beach Girls
- • Oysterville: the First Generation
