"Journeys" is a labor of love from Journey Writers, a nonprofit writing group. The selections in this anthology offer a spicy gumbo of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, songs, and haiku that are sure to whet your appetite and satisfy your hunger for inspiring writing. Sprinkled throughout the essays, stories, poems, songs, and haiku are tempting flavors of serious thought, humor, and plain talk.
This anthology is divided into several sections. "Home and Family" focuses on essays and stories about growing up and navigating all that life brings. "The Personal is Political" takes a look at how we affect and are affected by society, politics, and our communities. "The Journey Within" includes introspective pieces from several viewpoints. "Into the Night" considers a variety of complex issues that surround love and relationships. "Poetry, Songs and Haiku" takes the reader on a fascinating journey to many destinations. "We Be Published: Journey Writers In Print" shares the publishing journeys of members in this non-profit writing group. The idea for this anthology, grown from the founders' vision, came to fruition during the COVID-19 pandemic when we, like many other organizations, moved our meetings to Zoom. We wanted to spotlight a variety of pieces that were workshopped during our regular meetings.
