Unexpected Gifts, by Bess Vanrenen — I made a point of giving the letters to Ed. After the first: “Did you see this, Ed? It’s from the bank.” After the second or third: “It’s another letter from the bank, Ed. It looks important.” He’d just smile and wave me away, saying he’d “get to it later” and “it’s nothing to worry about.” But he never got to it, and I did worry.

We are changing things up at SHR because we want to up our engagement with creatives like you. The publishing world has changed. The Internet opened up shiny, new ways to connect with writers and artists. We’d like to learn more about how and why artists and writers create, so we’ve decided to do things differently. We’re introducing podcasts, video tours through artists’ studios and a blog. By making this experience more interactive, we hope to become better artists and writers, ourselves. We’ll continue to publish stories, poetry and artwork too. Check out our submission page if you’re interested.More
