Clara :: Shared on Anchor&Plum Press

 Anchor&Plume Press shared a short (story) I wrote on the season of canning and preserving.

"As the harvest moon approached and the sun slowly tucked into the bed of summer’s edge, Clara and her sister would gather themselves under the aprons of their mother and aunt at the hearth of their grandparents’ kitchen. ...."

Please click through to read the rest and let me know what you think.
 P.S. I would love for you to leave any notes, criticism and feedback over at Anchor&Plume!


  1. Love a story about canning in this abundant season! Thanks Becca!

  2. Love the story about canning -- especially in this abundant season!

  3. Just visited Anchor and Plume...and just spent several minutes soaking in your story, feeling transported to childhood in late summer. When I read read creative writing, I am reading not to "find out what happened" in a plot, but instead just to soak in the imagery, atmosphere, smells, sounds and spirit of another time, or season or place. I am so glad I found a few minutes to enter into Clara's grandmother's kitchen in late summer. Oh, that was lovely!!

    1. Oh Lisa, I am so so glad! thank you ever so much for your kind words! xo
