For much of the country, it's the time of year for darkness and gloom. Many of us go to great lengths to fight the darkness, keeping our winter world warm and well-lit until spring rolls around again.
But are there also reasons to embrace the darkness around the holiday season? Minnesota Public Radio's In The Loop wants to hear your odes to the darkness: poems, short stories, family tradition.
Feel free to post anything of any length here at our Gather group. But what we're ultimately looking for are short submissions that might work on our next radio show -- postings that ideally take less than a minute to read. If you'd rather not have your posting considered for the show, notate as much at the bottom of it. Otherwise, everything is fair game!
Format your title this way: "Ode to Darkness: (Your title here)." And remember to post to the In The Loop group at InTheLoop.Gather.com.
