About the Book
Countless anthologies have been produced through the years, with single writers or as a collaboration of several writers’ works. What makes this one unique and read worthy? The answer lies in an idea of having and hosting a “poetry, prose, short story, and theatrical script society” in North Hastings. North Hastings is an area of villages and towns, lakes and streams, mines and forests. It is also the home to many writers, artists, and artisans - both known and unknown.
Many of these creative efforts are like flowers first observed. One may not be sure whether they will keep them, cultivate them, or put them front and centre in a vase to beautify their home. What you hold in your hands is a variety of selected writings from people whose greatest joy is communicating their own observations, thoughts, and imaginative tales. May each contributor help you to consider even the smallest element in the world around, inspire you to express yourself, and encourage you as you enter together with them through the gates of life’s journey - past, present, future, and fantasy.
