“Every life has its tipping points–those moments when multiple future paths are laid out and decisions must be made. In an anthology curated by Colin Farstad and filled with writing by Tom Spanbauer and alums of his Dangerous Writers workshops, local writers confront The Frozen Moments of their lives in essays, fiction, poetry and non-fiction.”


The Frozen Moment: Contemporary Writers on the Choices that Change Our Lives, is an anthology involving fiction, poetry, essays and narrative non-fiction by emerging and established writers exploring the pivotal moments and choices that change the direction of our lives.
