"Because...everyone has a story, but few have the courage to share them."
WINTER IN THE MITTEN
Winter in the Mitten is filled with writings of humor, reflection, and perhaps some that might stir your memory and emotions. Each story is 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. 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 about 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.

SPRING IN THE MITTEN
Spring in the Mitten is filled with writings to stir you to laugh, cry, and reflect on the awakening of this season in Michigan. The dawning of a warmer climate to the mitten state brings out emotions of joy and reflection, different for each writer. This is the second anthology for Shiawassee Area Writers and highlights fiction, memoirs, essays, and poetry.
For some Shiawassee Area Writers, these are their first publications and for others, it follows their submitted work in our first anthology, Winter in the Mitten, published in September of 2018. Through rewrites, edits, deadlines, and revisions, each one honed their manuscripts, but also their craft of learning to write for publication. The entire process took almost a year for each writer to finalize.
Our group is excited to share their writings with you. The spring season brings out an assortment of childhood memories, visions of new flower gardens or experiences in the mud. Also important, is the special season of Easter. Spring brings a new beginning, a fresh start, a step closer to summer fun and vacations. We’re also excited to share some of this book’s profits by awarding two Shiawassee area high school seniors scholarships to pursue a career in writing. Because…everyone has a story, but few have the courage to share them.
