Fall 2015 Issue

This autumn in New Hampshire has been warm and filled with the vivid colors of the season. We are at peak color now, making it a perfect time to introduce the fall 2015 issue of Smoky Quartz, which is now online.

This issue is as richly hued and varied as the New England woods this time of year. Thank you to the writers and artists who’ve contributed their poetry, prose, and artwork to create such a strong, satisfying issue.

Fall 2013 Issue

The fall 2013 issue of Smoky Quartz is dedicated in fond memory of Raymond “Ray” Regan–writer, friend, and longtime member of the Monadnock Writers’ Group. This time of year, he loved walking the colorful, wooded trails with views of the hills, in his hometown of Milford, New Hampshire.

A sincere “thank you” to the writers and artists who have shared their beautiful and thought-provoking work in this issue. There would be no Smoky Quartz without you.

You can view the cover page and table of contents here.

See you in the spring of 2014 when Candace Bergstrom will re-join me as co-editor. Please keep those submissions coming to our new email address at mwgsmokyquartz@gmail.com. Your words and images will keep us warm this winter.

The work in this issue is as varied, and as beautiful, as this season of spring has been—a foot of fresh snow, soaking rains that produced lush greens, and jaw-dropping bursts of color from flowering trees and shrubs.

Many thanks to the writers and artists who shared their inspiring and colorful work.
