The more we intake the writing process as mystery, the less likely we are to access it. Perhaps it’s naïve, but I’m convinced that writing offers a type of fuel for efficient problem-solving. Writing can move us through the world with vigor and curiosity.

Advocates can make change by not only voicing concerns for discriminatory policies, but also by making sure they are at the table.
