This book was completely amazing! My favorite piece was probably Jane Hicks' poem, though I found Erik Reece's essay to be very informative, and I also enjoyed seeing Ann Pancake's piece (an early draft of her novel.) And Rebekah Ainsworth's piece really spoke to me in that she is doing the sort of work which I might like to do. The inclusion of younger writers into the book also made it a unique and hopeful book.
