In this stimulating literary collection, The Grey Quill Society Review presents more than a record of all the wonderfully interesting and woefully goofy things these writers experienced. Rendered with a self-conscious affection, and without accolades or excuses, these stories celebrate the reality they faced and the fights they took on. Their willingness to be honest expands storytelling from simply recounting experience to expressing the experience's meaning, elevating autobiography to memoir. The difference is important. Autobiography, a search for facts, chronicles the storms we pushed through. Memoir, a search for truth, contemplates the storms that pushed through us. One informs. One forms. One is our battle with the world. One is the battle with our selves. And while there is knowledge in the former, there is wisdom in the latter. And it is this wisdom that distinguishes the voice within each author's unique articulation on matters of trust, consequence, fairness, affection and loss, and teaches us the invisible beauty of words.

The Grey Quill Society Review is an anthology of fiction, poetry, memoir, essay, and artwork created by members of the Grey Quill Society writers' workshop at the Motion Picture retirement community in Woodland Hills, California. It is published by The Motion Picture and Television Fund, and dedicated to all the members of the motion picture and television community.
