I’m still in shock at how eloquently and profoundly each of the attendees displayed their work. The poetry read to me was nothing short of breathtaking.
The dialogue and breakdown on word architecture and effective methods with which to best deliver heavy truths and life lighthearted intricacies was something that will resonate me, in my creative process, for years to come.
Because the “Wordsmiths of Tarrant” meetings are, also, about examining the tutelage of the storms and sunshine of our lives, we had a very in-depth and enlightening discussion on mental health and the diversity issue in the writing industry. To Rachel Eastman, Stephanie Eastman, and Lisa Roberts aka Lyrical Lisa, you are all brilliant. I can only hope I taught you have as much as you taught me, and I’m so grateful that you could attend.
