Calhoun County's own Jeanne Wilson, recently sold her short story, The Color of Hope to the St. Anthony Messenger, a national catholic magazine published for its 300,000 subscribers.

Twelve stories are selected each year from over 1,400 submissions.

Another of her stories, When the Time Comes will be printed May 25 in 130,000 Nazarene church papers.

Wilson's fiction, appearing in religious publications, is not denominational but concerns problems a reader might experience. There is not always a happy ending but always a vein of hope.

This spring she will be honored by having two other short stories and two poems included in, Catching the White Swan. Work for this anthology is chosen from winners of the West Virginia Writers Competition held during the past six years.

Recently, Wilson's article, Resuscitating Dead Sentences was printed in the WV state writer's paper, WV Writers, Inc.

Wilson has published twenty-four short stories in religious and literary periodicals and also published and garnered prizes for poetry.
