After reading Into the Woods from the previous retreat, I couldn’t wait to dive into another collection of short stories from an inspirational group of authors. My TBR list has grown exponentially! Winter has come to visit us in Tennessee a bit early so this made for a cozy, indoor read over a few days. Short stories always pack a punch from start to finish and none disappointed! The variety of writing styles and themes (centered around the winter/holiday season) make it easy to put down and pick back up when you have a free moment. The fact that this book is produced as the result of a retreat makes it all that much more special to me. It is wonderful to see authors with such varying interests and experiences (life and writing!) come together to share their stories and contribute to good causes!
I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Into the Woods is the title and theme for this assortment of short stories, poems, essays, music, and one walking meditation. Each piece is unique in tone and genre and the result is that the collection captures the fascinating, frightening, fun, healing, and fantastical wonder of time spent in the woods. The twenty-six contributors who attend Mindful Writers Retreats in the mountains of Ligonier, Pennsylvania, are donating one hundred percent of the proceeds to support the research and work of The Children’s Heart Foundation.

The group consists of bestsellers, award-winners, first-time authors, seasoned veterans, poets, memoirists, essayists, musicians, journalists, novelists, and short story writers who are traditionally, self and hybrid published. At Mindful Writers Retreats the labels don’t create a hierarchy, but instead reveal the richness of those who attend. Every single writer contributes to the magic and the fun that results from meditation, walking in the woods, and hour upon hour of mindful writing.
