Springsteen's River Tour: What the Boss Means to Me

FREE WRITING

    70,000 fans. 4 hours. One man and his guitar. What took place at Gillette Stadium on September 14 was a rock n’ roll sermon, and Bruce Springsteen was the minister.
    There are two types of Boss concert-goers: people who go to the show, say, “Wow, that was a good show,” and go home; and there’s people like me. People who go to the show and leave different than when they walked in. People who say to themselves, “I need...

Under the Cape Cod Sun

FREE WRITING

The best part, I remember, was the mudroom rug. Bright designs of flip flops covered it, and I spent my childhood trying to match up my little feet to the perfect size shoe. Every time I visited my aunt Pam’s beach house, “The Henshaw House” I'd call it, I’d march around on that carpet looking for my pair of shoes, the perfect fit.

Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ

FREE WRITING

Grazing the eroded floor of teal and coral tiles,
A mermaid giggles beside me,
Smirking at all the more she knows than me.

Inside these two remaining walls lies an untold story,
A story of glamour and bliss and endless summers,
A...

A Warm Slice of American Pie

One boy, the Sandler-esque Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs), embarrasses himself and wrecks his chance of...

An Album Born To Run

PROMPT: Album Review Competition 2015

Growing up in working class Freehold, New Jersey, Bruce Springsteen watched his father struggle to keep a steady job while his mother was a secretary at an insurance office. The Boss had a complicated relationship with his father, which he credited as the inspiration for many of his songs. His passionate storytelling would not have been the same if Bruce Springsteen got along great with his father.

His third album, Born to Run, skyrocketed the Boss into the spotlight. Even though the album only has eight...
