ON THE COVER: With the turn of the year, it seems that everyone is either looking back or looking forward. In the spirit of remembering times past, last year The Independent presented a memoir contest open to writers young and old, professional and amateur. We received many responses and have included the contest’s winners (including the winner of our 30 Years Old and Younger category) in this edition of The Indy. Enjoy! Click here to check out the winners!
