  • The Last Train: our new contest is at the station Trains. What images they conjure; what memories they provoke! Trains are either the beginning or the end of many, many stories; someone departs, someone arrives. As tragic as Lincoln on a train to Springfield, as horrifying as a train shuttling down the tracks in Poland in the Forties. As adventurous as the Woodie Guthries hopping a freight, as exhilarating for waiting in the station when you get the email she changed her mind. What's you story?
  • Again Again - Tom For our latest contest – Again – we had our dear friend Ed Coonce custom-design a trophy for the lucky winner. Read more about our contest here.
