February is a month full not known for creativity. The longest, shortest, month on the calendar…February. This month teaches us to appreciate dreariness, to dwell on the creativity in unhappiness. Perhaps the long winter has given you the time to hone your art, to finish that short story, to perfect that print you’ve been thinking on since summer, or maybe you can tolerate the ambiguity for an unfinished project. Submit that project to the Owen Wister Review. Take a chance this month, and watch in April as your submission grows into something you can hold onto forever with your hands, created by your hands. Planted in a short month, planted in dreariness and giving sustenance to our readers and artist this spring.
