Today is the official release date for this handsome coffee-table book, Vine Leaves Literary Journal: A Collection of Vignettes from Across the Globe. It includes "Cosmologies," a vignette I wrote some years ago in a creative writing class with Kate Evans.
The prompt was "you are an astronaut," and while many in my class wrote madcap sci-fi adventures, I thought about how children can believe they are anything. I wrote from the perspective of a mother recognizing that she can still create magic for her young son, but she won't always be able to.
Annnnd stay tuned for another book-related announcement soon!
