Snow Softly Falling
A call was sent out asking writers to submit unpublished short stories for a fiction anthology featuring writers with a significant P.E.I. connection. Their qualification was that it the story be about the holidays. PEI is strong on tradition, which includes out-migration and immigration. Thus, its culture and demographics are changing, and these PEI writers both are Island-born and hail from away.

The result is a collection of stories, essays and poems that will resonate with readers from all backgrounds.  Click Here to Buy Now
