Jack Heffron on Writing as “Hope”

photo courtesy of Creative Commons, license CC0 “Writing is an act of hope. It is a means of carving order from chaos, of challenging beliefs and assumptions, of facing the world with eyes and heart wide open. Through writing, we declare a personal identity amid faceless anonymity. We find purpose and beauty and meaning even when the rational mind argues that none of these exist. Writing, therefore, is also an act of courage … you have to risk opening yourself.”
