From 2008-2011, residents of Bedford, Massachusetts came together with a common goal of learning to write creative prose. Local writing teacher Mindy Pollack-Fusi elicited heartfelt, humorous, and inspirational stories, essays and poems out of her students ages 25-75—then took them public in August, 2011. “The Ice Cream Stand and Other Stories & Poems” is a 198-page collection by 21 writers who portray everyday events written from the heart and based on personal experience and imagination. As the book unfolds, readers see the progression of writers' skills, and individual voices emerge in this collective tapestry, including work by prose instructor, Mindy Pollack-Fusi and poetry teacher, Dianalee Velie.
