Join our Tenth Anniversary DoveTales Celebration Reading Sunday, October 24th, at Noon

Tomorrow, at noon Pacific Standard Time, we celebrate the release of our Tenth Anniversary Anthology, Abrazos, in memory of Sam Hamill, and our 2021 DoveTales, Letter from the Self to the World, guest edited by Adriana Paramo, with a special Sunday LIVE Reading.

This 591 paged anthology is dedicated to advisor Sam Hamill (1943-2018), and titled Abrazos in memory of the way he used to sign off on his emails. The beautiful cover was adapted by artist-in-residence Juniper Moon from one of Sam’s original paintings.

Happy Tenth Anniversary, dear Writers for Peace, and Abrazos

Dear Writers for Peace,

It’s hard to believe that August is here, but ten years ago this month we began Writing for Peace with a writing contest for ages 13-19. We’ve been combing through the years of DoveTales and our blog, selecting the pieces that most represent our journey together, from Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter, immigration and the detention of child migrants, and the pandemic that ripped off the veil from so many of the world’s social inequities. As our tenth anniversary anthology takes shape, I am awestruck and humbled by the wisdom and beauty shared over the course of a decade. And there will be surprises. For years, we have said that our wonderful writers for peace hail from every continent except Antarctica. In this anthology, we will hear an important message from that icy continent.

In addition to all this, the book will include our 2021 DoveTales, Letters from the Self to the World, edited by Writing for Peace Editor-in-Chief Robert Kostuck and Guest Editor Adriana Paramo, as well as works from our 2021 Young Writers Contest winners.

The official release date for our tenth anniversary DoveTales anthology, Abrazos, is September 1st. That month, we’ll celebrate with some very special readings with Sunday LIVE Host Juniper Moon and guests. I’ll share more information about that soon, as well as how you can preorder Abrazos, dedicated to the memory of our first Adviser, Sam Hamill.

Stay tuned, and keep writing.

Carmel Mawle
Writing for Peace President and Founder
