The Winter Solstice is here - and the release of our gorgeous quarterly literary magazine, Mused!


The darkest night of the year, the moment when sunlight begins to grow and re-enter our world. The Winter Solstice. Our 2010 issue of Mused celebrates a renewal of our soul.

Handmade ornaments celebrate the natural beauty of wood and sea urchin. An elderly lady in China waits patiently with her wares. An empty bench invites you in for a rest.

A snowman ornament brings back memories of a gentler time. One poem celebrates a youth of watermelon juice and dark chocolate. Another delves the depths of a woman beyond despair.

Fiction stories explore the challenging world of Alzheimer's and the crumbling charade of a failing marriage. Yet hope springs eternal, as another relationship tentatively unfolds.

Non-fiction tales give us a first-person view of the immigration process, of fighting through breast cancer, and spending Christmas alone.

Denise Mancuso, an artist in soap, creates visions too beautiful to eat. Her mission for you - "Find what you like to do, and follow through"!



We'd love feedback on the issue - please send me your thoughts!

Being a part of the Mused team is fantastically fun - you help to shape the worlds of artists and propel them to new heights! If you have any interest in joining one of our Mused teams, please let me know!
