Make writing a daily habit. Check out our second the last week of our graduating capstone. This week: Add character, setting, and conflicts and watch Mike magically weave a story. It will be a-MAZE-ing!(Plus it’ll be fun to see how Mike handles those unexpected curve balls. I love him!). Go MIKE!

In creating these narratives that “[are] not true, nor could ever possibly be true,” we define and re-define ourselves. We are human and humane, connected and creative.
Come and unleash your goblins and elves here at Plenum Pleasant Horrors of Fairytales Inside the Belly of the Wolf, my week of our MFA’s graduating capstone project.
