Anthology Theme

    The 2018 anthology, Reflections: Images and Memories should be a combination of short stories and poems that reflect. Reflections can be of past memories, history (personal of other). They can be of the present, moments that you want to remember, or cherish. Although the theme is a guideline to follow, it should not limit you in your writing. All we ask is that your writing be the best possible work you create.
