Unfinished Chapters - an anthology edited by Christina Hamlett


If Life came with a “rewind” button, we could insert ourselves into missed opportunities, give voice to unspoken words, make amends for hurtful deeds, keep friendships from falling by the wayside, and even linger to smell the roses. Twenty exceptional writers share their true stories of love, loss, missteps, chance encounters, do-overs, and the musing of “woulda/coulda/shoulda” moments that make us so uniquely human.

This anthology came about as the result of an international writing contest held during the summer of 2015. Essayists of all ages participated, many of whom had never entered their work in a professional competition before. The judges clearly had a challenge in reading, re-reading and finally determining not only the top 3 stories for cash awards but 17 more that would merit a place in the finished product. Plans are already in the works for a new contest in Spring 2016. If you're a writer with great storytelling skills, I encourage you to drop me an email at authorhamlett@cs.com to get on the list for advance notice of the theme and submission rules.

Christina Hamlett, Editor, is an award-winning author whose credits include 32 books, 158 plays, and hundreds of articles, interviews and blogs. She is also a screenplay consultant (which means she stops a lot of really bad movies from coming to theaters near you) and a professional ghostwriter (which does not mean she talks to dead people).
