Pumpkin seeds and other gifts : stories from the Femrite Regional Writers Residency, 2008 by Helen Moffet( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The names of those who penned the writings in this impressive collection alone tell half the story. They tell their stories in different modes.

Some of the poems lift up the heart, and others peel back the blinkers that blind our eyes. There is the romantic, the macabre and the surreal. The writings never leave you indifferent - you are likely to take sides, to get angry, to laugh, to cry, and to think of a lot that goes on inside the human heart
