The Winter Reading Issue


  • Meredith Miotke

The annual Winter Reading Issue is the only time of year Seven Days publishes fiction — in this case short stories by Vermont writers Castle Freeman Jr. and Erik Esckilsen.

Vermont native and world traveler Leath Tonino sent us a true story about spending New Year’s Eve at the “bottom of the world,” aka Antarctica. (Vicarious snow!)

Margot Harrison surveys local writers to find out how they found their literary agent — a must in the competitive world of publishing.

Julia Shipley dissects the latest volume by former Vermont poet laureate Sydney Lea, and Sadie Williams chats up author Brian Staveley, whose fantasy trilogy is an epic success.

If you’re a writer, too, or just like to read, make yourself a cup of cocoa and savor these words.
