6 World War II Adventure Stories for Memorial Day Weekend

It’s Memorial Day this Monday, May 31, and so we present a collection of World War II stories published at Liberty Island over the years. Why does the heroism of World War II stand out so much today as a unique opportunity for creative writers? Is it the nature of the enemies the West fought and the scope of the threat they posed? Is it the way that America was able to unify toward one shared vision? One wonders if that’s ultimately what it takes to bring Americans together now […]

The Summer of Love Writing Contest

It is often said that Summer is for Lovers. What’s less often remarked is that every four years in America summer is for politics – and never more so than in 2016. So as we enter the warmer months and passions are running high (both in head and in heart) our latest short story contest invites you to explore the interplay, conflicts, and confluence of love and politics. After all, romance (and the lack thereof) has driven man’s urges for revenge, power, and control since the Greek fleet sailed for […]

When You Left

When you left. A missing announcement. No light piercing the darkness. No key for a hope. When you left. A bottomless well lingering where sorrow could grow. Reflections dry in the darkness, A forest’s endurance and core. A stranger’s hand with a mirror Rebounded the rays. Cast a light much too nearer In the emptiness. Haze. Your exit failed to shine in the darkness. In the mirrorless light. When a departure is artless In the shadow of night. Our past was our present Because we knew when we met. Of […]

Week Eighteen: The Taco Bowl

"Oh, come on," Polly said. "It will be fine." "I don’t know about this," I said. "It doesn’t seem like a very good idea." "We’re just going out to get lunch," she said. "That’s all we’re doing, like anyone else would on a random Thursday. And we’re getting Mexican food, which is yummy and delicious." "I don’t like Mexican food," I said. "I’m a vegetarian." "I have called ahead," Polly explained. "They understand. Well, they don’t understand, but they can make you a vegetarian Mexican lunch if that’s what you […]

Here’s How to Challenge the Climate Alarmist Narrative

One of the most pervasive and pernicious of all narratives — and one that is in dire need of challenging — is that of climate alarmism. The climate alarmist narrative reads as follows: All manner of disasters around the world are attributable to “global warming,” “climate change,” or “climate disruption,” and the antidote is to halt economic progress and redistribute wealth on a massive scale. Most chilling of all, the state is seeking to silence “climate deniers” by targeting “Big Oil” and with it individuals and organizations who dissent against […]

Week Seventeen: The Refugee Crisis

I stood on the bow of the Fairchild Conqueror as it sailed across the choppy waters of the Caribbean. To my right side (which people who know things about boats call the "starboard" side, for reasons I could not tell you in a million years) I could see the fair island of Cuba as a green line in the distance. To my left side, there was nothing but miles and miles of open ocean. We had sailed for three days out of Nassau, headed for Grand Cayman. The salt air […]
