A Summer Of Stories
This summer we are proposing the first ever UUFH RE Literary Magazine. We are asking that all of the willing students submit a work from one of (or all of) the three listed categories. Submissions can be handed in as early as July 1st and can be submitted until August 12th. We have also decided to open the publication potential to the congregation as a whole and make this a church-wide project. The works submitted will be gathered and published in a magazine style presentation and made available to the entire congregation. Each work should reflect the theme of the Summer RE Program “Our UU Story”. Use your chosen work of art, be it literature, photography, or a visual art, to convey the story you tell yourself about what it means for you to be a member of a UU congregation.
