How can we hone our writing craft, so that the Creative can arise to its fullest potential, and hopefully be a force for positive transformation in our own lives as well as in others'? The great American poet Nikky Finney has written, "My job as a poet, as an artist, is to not look away." How do we keep on looking at the things that hurt, scare, or confuse us, and translate this to the page? What, if anything, is the writer's role in building a more just world with less suffering? How might we use writing to create more freedom in the world, and in ourselves?
