In today’s self-centered culture, people are taught to be primarily concerned with “I”. Insecurities are constantly exploited, while our deep innermost thoughts are often neglected.
We are Writers Organized to Represent Diverse Stories (W.O.R.D.S.), and we seek to abolish the practice of “self” and replace it with teachings of the importance of relationships, community and self-love.
How? By sharing our WORDS!
The act of sharing personal stories is essential for relating to others, opening discussions and bringing catharsis. Our stories are powerful, and it is through sharing them that we are reminded of our humanity and that we are not alone.
WORDS meets Tuesday nights at 8PM in 112 Osmond Building!
“THERE IS NO GREATER AGONY THAN BEARING AN UNTOLD STORY INSIDE OF YOU.” – Maya Angelou
Check out our featured poem!
by Carla Capone
After coming home from a job that pays,
For nothing more than wifi and McDonalds,
I showered—made my hair into a mohawk
Held together by shampoo and childhood.
