Winter in the Mitten is filled with writings of humor, reflection, and perhaps some that might stir your memory and emotions. Each story unique – just as the wonderful individuals who wrote them. The winter-themed diverse anthology features fiction, memoirs, and poetry highlighting the best aspects of this season.
You don’t want to miss some of the personal miracles shared or the vivid imagination of our fiction and poetry writers. Have you ever wondered about snowshoeing or how maple syrup is processed? How a simple paper route changed one author’s life. There’s a reunion with a chilling surprise ending. Angels appear in multiple forms to help us ponder spiritual thoughts. See how a young bullfighter fights and wins. Boot camp graduation dishes up an unexpected surprise. For one writer, a connection to evergreens spurs nostalgic memories and produces a new attitude. An ice storm hits before Christmas Day leaving families homeless. And what would the winter season be without the mention of the Savior’s birth?
For many of Shiawassee Area Writers, these are their first publications. They’ve worked diligently with rewrites, edits, deadlines, and revisions. They’ve gained knowledge of guidelines, formatting, and grammar. Each member dedicated to master the skills of writing for publication, seeking to make their stories the best they can be. For SAW’s seasoned authors, this is a special way to give back.
We would like to share this blessing with you, our readers. This winter season and always; may your hearts be filled with forgiveness, joy, gratitude, hope, and the greatest of these, love. Because…everyone has a story, but few have the courage to share them.
