Present tense: Writing Contest winners
This issue is dedicated to the winners of the 2016 Pasatiempo Writing Contest, whose stories, essays, and poems — from writers aged ten to eighty — you will read in the following pages. Illustrating the pieces are selections from God Bless the Child, an evocative and eclectic exhibit of photographs at Scheinbaum & Russek Ltd. that spoke to the serious and reflective tone of many of this year’s submissions. (View God Bless the Child through December by appointment only, 505-988-5116.) On the cover is Edouard Boubat’s gelatin silver print, Parc de Sceaux, Cerisiers Japonais, 1983.
