Today’s cover story isn’t about the big issues of our day. It’s not about a trend, a news event or a news maker.

Today we offer a slice-of-life story about a dying elderly woman and the unusual way she chose to honor her granddaughter. Through Milly Lally, we get a glimpse of how we live and how we die. It’s a lovely story, compassionately told by writer Traci Angel.

Writers like Traci are the lifeblood of a news magazine. They find good tales and turn them into compelling, nuanced stories that show us who we are, where we live and how we work together to form a community.

We at The Star are looking for strong writers and even stronger reporters — journalists who can spot the telling detail, ask the right questions and turn fact-filled notes into a well-told narrative. If you’re a writer and are interested in freelancing for 913, email me at ghobson@kcstar.com. Send me a resume and three published pieces of your work.
