This isn’t a program for casual writers. It’s a program for poets and storytellers.

It’s for people who want to take their writing skills beyond the hobby level; for those who want to share stories and experiences that matter.

No matter how much modern technology connects or disconnects us, storytellers remain a vital part of our collective understanding. Be it through fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, performance pieces or poetry and prose, storytellers transform facts, figures and experiences into empathy, understanding and inspiration.
