This spring, for the first time since kindergarten, I have been planting seeds and witnessing their movement from underground darkness into light of day. Watching them emerge from the dirt then progress from spindly sprouts to hardy seedlings has been a delight. And waiting while they did their work beneath the ground was exciting too, knowing what was to come.
As writers and artists, we too must move from the depths of potential to the surface of expression. In solitude we work deep within the rich soil of the emotional world until we have something we can bring out into the light. And if we have given ourselves and our work the right kind of nurturing, it will be unique and beautiful, and others will notice, admire and be moved by it.
Because I believe in the importance of all of us doing our creative work, because I believe by telling our own stories, we can heal not only ourselves but others as well, I am delighted to be helping aspiring writers move into and through this process.
I hope you will join me. No experience is necessary. As long as you have stories to tell and a desire to write, you are qualified.
