There is something about the way the world is revealed in winter by its light—weak, delicate, muted—that compels us to reveal ourselves. The starkness of a landscape under snow is an invitation to introspection. Trees without leaves, earth without grass, and air without warmth: winter is a time for waiting. Winter is a time for writing. What can we learn from the process of failing to capture someone's image? Writers are obsessed with metamorphosis.
Moments that transform, moments in which the before is split from the after, in which a life is riven irrevocably. A long life is likely to undergo many severings. A short story often undergoes only one. This contest is one of the few in North America that accept long poems. Last chance to submit to our Open Season Awards contest!
