"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 Still Waiting for an Answer

29 November 2016

I’ve had only two brief replies to all of the emails and letters I’ve sent to my senators, members of Congress, or the White House. The two I have received came from Senators Kaine and Warner. Neither response actually addressed what I had written them. Neither response actually said anything at all.  

Nonanswer (noun (plural nonanswers)

  1. The lack of an answer.
  2. An answer that is so vague or noncommittal as to be worthless. 

Make art about someone giving a Non-Answer.
