We began Wide Open Writing to provide creative resources and inspiration for ourselves and others. We wanted to travel and write and do that with other people who thrived on that as well. To that end, we were right on in believing this would be well received.

What we underestimated was the affect that being in the midst of creative vigor has on creative output – both in quantity and in quality. One of the most rewarding benefits of being part of Wide Open Writing has been watching and being part of each other’s growth.

So in this section we’ll do our best to bring note to each other’s accomplishments, public or individual, whether by completion or publication. While not our primary purpose, we all need acknowledgement of our continued commitment and the path we travel in the process.
