posted in: News | 0

Reflecting what to many has been a long year, the Portland Writers’ Mill’s latest book has a long title. The title page reads, Journeys Through Chaos: an Anthology to Bring Us Together; the Writers’ Mill Journal Volume 8, “a collection of writing from a very challenging year, published 2020.” It has been an enjoyable contributing to yet another book—writing, proofreading, brainstorming and voting on potential titles to a project whose working name was “Challenges.” Most years we publish an anthology; even when we didn’t, we have produced other collections.

The Writers’ Mill’s eclectic collections make good Christmas presents. Find this one at

My writings in Journeys Through Chaos are:

  • “Mania Mountain and the Valley of the Shadows”—an essay about bipolar disorder, which placed 3rd in the Writers’ Mill August 2020 writing contest
  • “Reset”—a poem on the hope that the pandemic will precede worldwide spiritual revival
  • “Not Social”—a haiku about disorientation, which you can read on the Writing Samples page of this site
  • “The Morning”—a fictional short story about a man who makes a mistake on his wedding day
  • “Matches”—a poem about relationships
  • “Welcoming Lilly”—a fictional short story about real people, with just one name changed—the one who isn’t in Heaven yet
