One of the wonderful things about our first Nutshell Narratives contest is the number of young writers who entered! We received impressive stories from Middle School, High School, and College writers, in addition to our older Adults and Seniors. It’s very encouraging to see such talent at all ages and levels of experience!
One of our youngest writers, Emmy Childress, wrote this lovely story that perfectly captures a garden full of sights, fragrances and memories. We especially love the last two sentences. Emmy’s unique point of view and deep gift for poetic language make this story one you’ll remember for a long time.
