Writers and Ideas

These are perilous times and they demand that we challenge ourselves to look for better ways to build community and to live, work, and thrive together. Every writer who begins a book launches into terra incognita, embarking on a voyage of discovery that will bring to the reader reports from new worlds and maps on how to navigate safe passage.

Creative connections contribute to changing how we see, feel, and think about our experience of life.

Creative connections excite new insights, new ideas, new imagination, new inspiration, new interests, new initiatives, and new investment.

Creative connections contribute to our creative interests, to our creative enterprise, and to our ability to create possibilities for ourselves.

Creative connections excite creative community enterprise, creative leadership, creative entrepreneurship, and creative contribution to creating our lives, creating our experience of life, and creating our stories.

Creative connections contribute to accelerating our creative and cultural evolution as individuals, as communities, and as a community.

Creating connections for our writers, creating connections with the ideas of writers, and exciting interest in exploring the stories, observations, and ideas contributed by our writers for creative connections increases the contribution of our writers to our creative community interests.

“The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all.”
