Happy Winter Solstice! Our 25th issue of Mused is now live. We've reached the Silver Anniversary! Thank you so much to everyone who helps bring these issues to life.

Here's the description for this latest issue!

Winter lets us soak in the beauty of dark, relish the serenity of stillness, and find that moment to connect with what really matters in life. It's a time for introspection, for pondering, for seeking within for what makes us who we are.

A drop of rainwater poises, shimmering, with all the time in the world. A carved spiral of a morning glory bud holds still, fragrant with promise. Arches of rock open a window to another world.

Poems awaken the imagination. An elderly, bed-ridden patient soars. A man living off the land compassionately cares for the wildlife which shares his world. A wife shoulders anything and everything for the precious gift of staying at her husband's side.

Non-fiction gives us powerful glimpses into the tensions our world can hold. A ten year old boy in the deep south comes face to face with the brutality of the Klan. A shy Iranian bride learns that marriage can be cold, lonely. A younger sister survives foster care only due to her older sister's constant vigilance.

Fiction brings emotions rich with depth. A mother struggles with the loss of her son. A woman pushes to move on with her life after a rough break-up. Another sorts through a relationship, wondering if it's worth hanging onto.

Our play looks at relationships, connecting, and letting go.

Take time to breathe. Curl up in a blanket, pour a glass of tea, and let it in.


I'd love to hear your feedback, and let me know if you're interested in joining the Mused team!
