Past Loves Day Story Contest

chapter3EVEN IF you never see the person again, a significant former love remains with you. That woman or man is woven into the tapestry of your life – maybe as a subtle shading here and there, maybe as a vibrant pattern smack in the middle. Without those threads, the weaving would be something else. You would be someone else.
    -From If Only I Could Tell You

 

 


To foster awareness of PAST LOVES DAY, SEPTEMBER 17, Spruce Mountain Press sponsors an annual Story Contest. The Contest, and the Day, offer an opportunity to acknowledge a truth that lingers in your heart.

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS:

 

No entry fee

Nearly everyone has memories of a former sweetheart. Write your true story of an earlier love, in no more than 700 words. Tell us about someone whose memory brings a smile or a tear, or both:

What feelings arise if you allow yourself to be fully open to remembering that person?
What is it about that special someone that you still cherish?
IN PARTICULAR, how did that person's presence in your life change you and how you experience the world?

Your story may be heart-warming or humorous. Just tell about your earlier sweetheart as if you were talking to your best friend.
