The Drawing in of Breath
A Christian and an agnostic walk into a bar....
They walk into a coffee shop, and they start writing. A year later, they have a collaborative book of poetry and short stories that highlight the human experience. This is doubt, love, depression and life - told through the lenses of two contrasting belief systems.
This is inspiration. Like respiration, but "in". The drawing in of breath. It isn't something that comes once a year, once a month, once a day...it doesn't have to be waited for. Inspiration is as natural to the human spirit as breathing - so much that sometimes, we forget it's there.
We wanted to tell you that...it's still there.
11 different countries.
A group of writers from around the globe come together to write a book of advice and inspiration for fellow writers. Each mini-chapter is a different topic, from "Finding Inspiration When You Definitely Aren't Inspired" to "How to Create the Perfect Villain".
Project Canvas is built around the idea that everyone has an expertise. Everyone has a story to tell. While this book is written by and geared towards teen and young adult writers, Project Canvas will be a valuable craft book for anyone in the business of using words to tell stories. Projected publishing date is Early 2018!
Alone, I Sonder
The word "sonder", as defined by the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, is the 'realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own'.
ALONE, I SONDER is a collection of poetry, short stories, and excerpts written by high school students from Sumner Academy and beyond. These pieces reflect the heartaches and dreams of urban youth in Kansas City and give you a glimpse into our own vivid and complex lives...
"Write not just to write, write to express the dreams that will come true, the feelings that have never been heard, or as a voice too soft to speak" - Makayla Booker, contributing author
