Winter 2024 Anthology

Working Title - Winter Glimmerings | Read Sandy's initial introduction

To be a glimmer is to be a faint, wavering light; to glimmer is to shine dimly.  This has been the meaning of the word since the early 15th century, according to the Online Etymology Dictionary (, which also states that the word had meant “to shine brightly” at the end of the 14th century.  The word takes the Old English “gleam”--brightness–as its root.  Since the mid-13th century, to gleam has meant "to throw rays of light; appear suddenly and clearly."

We live each day in search of glimmers of hope, love, joy, faith. We fan the gentle flame with our own tentative breaths, that it might become a bonfire of hope, that beautiful dreams might come true.  

Winter Glimmerings will be a collection of poems about finding hope even in the cold and the dark and the unknown. Join us on this journey.
