Essays and Observations

Under my full name, Winter D. Prosapio, I've published dozens of award-winning essays. I've appeared on stage at Listen to Your Mother, had my work appear in the Christian Science Monitor, NPR, and in papers across the country as well as several Chicken Soup for the Soul Books. Lately I've been a featured reader on Our American Stories. I'm also a humor columnist who has had a weekly column (sign up to subscribe to it weekly!) running since 2006 in the Texas Hill Country.

Here is a collection of a few of my favorites.
