Dreamers Magazine Issue 13 Editor’s Letter, Kat McNichol, Editor-in-Chief:

Well shoot, it’s almost winter. I’ll let you in on a secret – I am not a fan. It’s not even 6pm and it’s already dark out. At this time of year, I’m not thinking about tobogganing and hot chocolate, much to my children’s irritation, I’m wishing for warm sand, blue water, and mai tais. But, as K.L. Johnson writes, “the smooth silver winter regularly comes and you should not be afraid, or cower away from the crackling silence turning the year” (page 6). I love phrases like “crackling silence” – in Johnson’s poem, “crackling silence” conjures moody images of ice and snapping snow. But there’s another kind of “crackling silence” that almost makes me like winter, because there’s nothing better than reading a good magazine in the crackling silence of a warm fire on a winter evening… and here’s the perfect magazine for the job! 😉

Welcome to Issue 13 of the Dreamers magazine, our winter issue!

In this issue, you’ll find lots of winners. Check out the first, second and third place winners of our annual flash contest (pages 3-5). On page 9, find “After the Storm,” by Sarah Courteau, winner of the 2023 Pen Parentis Fellowship for New Parents. Congratulations to this year’s winners!

In our feature story, “Counselling in the Time of Covid: Healing from the Veranda” (page 16), Rosalind Forster brings us to her veranda sanctuary for a bit of nature-based healing.

Thanks again to all the Dreamers out there! Keep dreaming.
