Ten days in Germany

Sherri Green won our 2018 Condor competition with her ‘pretzel itinerary’ If I were to go to Germany, where would I go? There are so many possibilities. I usually have trouble deciding what to order off of a restaurant menu! I asked some friends and they helped me narrow down the possibilities. Their suggestion? Tour …

Of Moose and Minarets

“Oh, the Yukon. I’m planning a moose hunting trip there.” Not the expected response from a Turkish rug salesman, as one wanders through the narrow cobblestone streets of Istanbul’s historic district, Sultanahmet. I felt far from my northern home while sweating in mid-May temperatures of nearly 20 degrees Celsius. I had assumed that my quick …

Drum Roll, Please

Editors love – and hate – writing competitions. We love them because they give us a chance to discover how different writers approach similar subject matter, the choices they make about what details to include, the images they employ to paint word pictures, the structure they use to tell their individual stories. We also love …
