"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

Heart Work <3 Central Virginia Chapter of Writing for Peace <3 Join Us As We Work Toward a More Peaceful World

So as busy as this fall semester has been, I’ve joined with some amazing people in two projects that pretty much embody two principles dominating my heart:
❤ K’in, the journal I’ve founded, making space for diverse, marginalized, and underrepresented voices, and ❤
❤ A new venture connected to Writing for Peace, an organization that means so much to me. I’ve been collaborating with an outstanding group of people to build on the amazing vision of Carmel Mawle, the work that Andrea Slack Doray, as our president carries on, in the mission of Writing for Peace. in the creation of the Central Virginia Chapter of Writing for Peace ❤
 
We’re still in the building process, but we have a home for the chapter, and we want to invite you to join us, as we work toward promoting empathy and peaceful activism in our communities. Our hope is that writers, and activists, and all kinds of supporters of the arts will come together in other places to form chapters of their own, so that we can work together creating a more peaceful world–for everyone.
 
So excited to be sharing this with y’all! ❤
