A Writer's Path
Jeremiah Cress, editor (anthology)
This collection of poems and short stories was penned by writer Christopher R. Barrett between the ages of 10 and 19. Before his passing in 1993 Christopher worked hard at his craft and was the recipient of the 1992 Keystone Award for writing. Within this book a writer's path unfolds, presenting the reader with more than the content within. The struggles, joys, passions and pains of a budding author are exposed, allowing a very personal exchange between the author and reader many years later. These stories and poems were formatted for publication but the editing was kept to a minimum. In doing so the path of the author has been kept intact. Feel free to follow along.
