Welcome to Egg Rock Lit.
It's a new column on Swampscott, a town rich in history and stories and people who like both.
Once a week we plan to post a literary item — a memory, a poem, a piece of local history or nonfiction or short fiction or anything else that you'd like to submit from your electric pen.
The only prerequisite is that the subject be Swampscott or that the writer lives in Swampscott.
We have two submissions to start.
One is from a Swampscott resident who recalls her room from childhood.
It's called The Blue Room and will run in tomorrow's Egg.
The second piece comes from Captain Jack, a recollection from his childhood in Swampscott. It's about a time he met.
The Captain's piece will run next Wednesday.
We're looking for submissions.
Send them to Terry.Date@patch.com
We'll also be combing local history files for stories to include in the Egg.
