"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 x 2

8 February 2018

I tell my students that writers don’t write because they have answers; they write because they have questions.

Make a list of your questions, what you wish you could ask other people, friends, family,  what you want to ask the world. If you could spray paint a single question on a public wall in ten foot tall letters, what would that question be? 

Make art inspired by or composed of your questions.

Self talk can be a major force for healing.

Make art about having that much needed conversation with yourself, that self-dialogue you’ve put off for too long.

Daily Prompt Love x 2 — On Teaching Children, and Feeling Safe

27 January 2018

When I was a child, my parents, who very much lived lives of service, took us little kids with them when they volunteered, at migrant farm camps, at the soup kitchen, while working with refugee families or others, wherever their volunteerism took them. Today, I was blessed to work with amazing parents who are teaching their children by setting the same examples, modeling for them lives of service. The children worked with us, learning what I learned as a kid—that we are, in fact, our brothers’ keepers, and that, yes, a single act of kindness, of service, can make the world a better place.

Make art about what we teach children by our actions.


28 January 2018

Make art about feeling unsafe, about steps you take to make yourself feel safe again, about taking down your own dragons.
