What is a Small Stone, anyway?

According to writer Fiona Robyn, it’s “a polished moment of paying proper attention. Writing them helps people to engage with the world around them.”

And the book?

Every day throughout January 2011, hundreds of writers joined writer/editors Fiona and Kaspa in the challenge to write a daily piece, a very small piece – think haiku/tweet/small poem – each one an observation from their day, a moment in time.

More than 350 established and complete-beginner writers created thousands of stones. About 320 of them are included in this book, along with other wonderful pieces of writing on the practice of writing with attention.
