If you are reading this, I know you are probably a writer and I am sure you are an avid reader.
You care about culture and finding community with others who are passionate about ideas, creativity, innovation, and using the arts to bring us closer together. On this blog, I’ll write about writing, share books I am reading, interview writers and cultural leaders, and ask you to share your creative process and discoveries with me. Writing is one of my most important guides through life and a guide to living a meaningful life. A lot of what I know about life I learned because I wrote about it.
In the comments below, tell me about your writing journey and how it has impacted your life.
