“Dear Winter” Writing Contest 2014


“Dear Winter,

This is really hard for me to say, but I feel like you’ve been growing distant. We never talk any more. I know you overheard me talking about Summer and how great it was, but I promise, I didn’t mean it. I can’t stand the thought of losing you and I just want you back. I’ll do anything. Please Winter, make it the way it was, don’t leave me.”

Welcome to “Dear Winter”. The first ever, first annual WinterReview Spring writing competition. Part of our Passion for Winter is writing. We love writing and we love writing about Winter.
