Little stories talk quietly about the biggest, most important things
We’ve told stories for thousands of years, using them to understand and remember our past, and to connect personal battles with broader social issues.
Our stories help us work out who we are, where we’re going. They are bits of souls, that can be passed on.
“I believe the world is beautiful, and that poetry, like bread, is for everyone.”–Roque Dalton
Stories have no borders. They allow us to describe injustice, and to imagine the change we want to see.
