In order to preserve our platform celebrating women authors, we created our first Virtual Flash Readings. Forty writers participated by recording themselves reading their work. The videos were combined into two seamless, beautiful videos by Jessica Vecchione of VECC Videography assisted by Amber Gray. These videos were aired via Zoom on Saturday, September 12th and 13th, 2020.
This is the power of creative writing—that it allows you to access parts of yourself and your story that you may not realize are right under the surface, waiting to be released. And once you see how powerful they are, you want to share them with others, and in turn hear their stories. I believe that this act—of claiming and sharing our unique stories—is a crucial part of healing our fractured world.
