INTRODUCTION




CHIRPS FROM THE SPARROW

          Winter comes after a long, fall slumber. Chilled air fills the lungs like prickly pine cones scraping against flesh.  And, the days are now short, dark, and cold.  Yet, hope and renewal arrive as gentle as the snow that rests on chickadees' wings.  Writings by Khem K. Aryal, Corey Mesler, Gisella Faggi, and Samantha Memi bring light into these long nights as all of our Sparrows do. 

          This year, Grey Sparrow Journal celebrates five years of publishing thanks to our volunteers!  In honor of this milestone a poetry and flash fiction competition is offered.  Our winners will have their writing in Snow Jewel; a Grey Sparrow Press annual.  Click on the navigation bar to the left for details.

          Robert Bly, again, has graced our pages.  At 87, he has announced, his memory is slipping into darkness. Soon, he may no longer remember one soft evening in 1982 at a party on River Road, talking casually about Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. We will remember him and his writing well into the future.

          On this blistery winter eve, warm yourself by the fire, click and read our winter issue.  Enjoy the holidays!
