Smoky Quartz Tenth Anniversary Anthology

“In these poems and stories, contributors portray change as it occurs within relationships and within the self. Many pieces examine alterations to geography and landscape, the places we call home, both literally and figuratively. Others reflect on the past or imagine the future. Here you will find nostalgia and longing, beauty and bewilderment, grief and glimmers of hope.”  ~ The Editors
