HMH is home to many of the world's great authors and stories, from J.R.R. Tolkien's tales of Middle-earth to Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway. We believe in the power of a good story to take us to new places, spark our minds, and change our lives. That’s why we launched Spark a Story as part of our Spark a Mind initiative. The submission period is now closed and our judges are now hard at work reading each entry. Thank you to everyone who submitted a story!
