"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Daily Prompt Love <3 Other People's Truth

I often tell my writing students, “Just because it may not be true in your world, doesn’t mean it isn’t true.” 

Make art about trying to understand what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes, or about making space for experience that is very different than your own.
