"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

What Does Peace Mean To You? Share it with us on PEACE VINES!

What Does Peace Mean To You?

I’ve posted recently about a new project about which I’m very excited: the Central Virginia Chapter of Writing For Peace, a local outreach of the national organization Writing For Peace.

Our first official chapter project is underway! But we need your help! 

Submission Guidelines for Peace Vines

In many conversations about Writing for Peace, we’ve learned that people limit their definition of the word peace to its association with war. The many beautiful and varied ways we can define peace, as individuals or in the many groups, cultures, etc., to which we belong, too often get lost in the shadow of war versus peace. So we want to hear from as many people as possible, discussing what peace means to them personally.

Being curated by Brigid Hokana, Peace Vines will be a Youtube Channel featuring these short videos, with the hope of opening up the discussion of what peace can mean, and why it matters so much to all of us.

If you’re interested in submitting a video for inclusion in Peace Vines, please visit our Current Projects Page for submission details. 

We can’t wait to hear from you. Peace.
