We believe that creative writing and other forms of art provide a way for people to share their unique feelings and philosophies and to see how others think and feel. The arts are fun, of course, but they're also unique forms of communication that affect individuals and entire cultures.
We believe in the fundamental value of the person, and look for work that affirms this belief, work that shows the effect actions and experiences have on people and speaks to the essential humanity that connects us all. We seek writing that touches the powerful feelings we all experience in the course of our lives -- pain, love, uncertainty, joy, anger, fear -- the emotions that motivate and empower us, or inhibit growth and block our ability to act.
