Past Loves Day Story Contest 2016

Past Loves Day Story Contest 2016

To foster awareness of PAST LOVES DAY, SEPTEMBER 17, Spruce Mountain Press sponsors an annual Story Contest. The Contest, and the Day, offer an opportunity to acknowledge a truth that lingers in your heart.

Nearly everyone has memories of a former sweetheart. Tell us about someone whose memory brings a smile or a tear, or both. What feelings arise if you allow yourself to be fully open to remembering that person? What is it about that special someone that you still cherish? IN PARTICULAR, how did that person’s presence in your life change you and how you experience the world?

We hope you discover something to treasure when you revisit a meaningful part of your heart’s journey.
