    It is the mission of Months to Years to “cultivate a beautifully designed online space to share compelling and original nonfiction, poetry, art, and photography that explores mortality and terminal illness.” As Editor Renata K. Louwers writes in this issue’s introduction, “We think things are going along a certain way with certain predictable events. And they are. Until suddenly, they’re not. What can we do besides surrender to the moment, maybe use the Calm app, and hope for the best? Some of us pray, some of us meditate or exercise, and some of us write. Others take photos or create visual art. Art – via the written word or visually – has served as a crucial coping mechanism for humans through the centuries.” We are no different than our ancestors.

  • Sponsor Spotlight :: Months To Years

    Months to Years Summer 2019 IssueFounded in 2017 by Renata and Tim Louwers, Months To Years is an online literary magazine exploring mortality and terminal illness. Both editors experienced the loss of their first spouses due to bladder cancer and early onset Alzheimer’s, inspiring them to co-found this journal. They wanted to create a literary space where those experiencing grief can reflect on their experiences through literature and art. The name of the journal is a phrase often used with terminally ill patients as the doctor’s best estimate of expected life span.

    Months To Years publishes nonfiction, poetry, photography, and art that explores grief, death, and dying on a quarterly basis. They are now back after a brief hiatus and accepting submissions on a continuous basis whether you are a terminally ill person, a doctor, someone who suffered a loss, a caregiver, or someone simply contemplating mortality.
