About The Event

Be inspired and write. 

If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. That is why we put these stories in each other’s memory. This is how people care for themselves. --Barry Lopez, from Crow and Weasel
