June 8, 2016 No Comments » Featured Poetry and Shorts, For Authors, OWS Features Stephanie Ayers


It happens once a year, and the date swiftly approaches. Daddies are special, especially writerly ones. They need more than your average Father’s Day gifts.

You don’t always have time to shop though, and sometimes, our dads have everything already. Maybe you need to one up your siblings to make up for that polka dot tie last year. Maybe you neglected Dad last year and need to make it extra good to redeem yourself. Whatever your reason, you need the perfect Father’s Day gift, and you need it fast!

Enter Our Write Side and our guide to Father’s Day shopping guide for the male author who has everything, and the author who wants everything…
