The Heights We Climb
What does this mean for you? Some of us will literary climb to the top of a mountain in our lifetime. For others it will mean finishing school, having a baby, retiring from work, moving to a new city, driving across a country, or simply finishing a poem, doing a piece of art or sitting with all your family. Come and explore where you have gone, where you might go and how it all unfolds on paper. No prior writing experience necessary.
