From BJ Hollars ’07
As a writer, I’ve been trying to find ways for people to connect, even from a distance. And so, I started the “Hope Is The Thing” Project, a statewide, collaborative writing project in which Wisconsinites share what’s bringing them hope during this dark time. Borrowing from Emily Dickinson’s poem title, “Hope Is The Thing With Feathers,” writers are asked to replaced “Feathers” with that which is currently giving them hope.
The submissions have been incredible. We’re publishing a new piece every day. Here’s a new video/article on the virus which I created for Volume One Magazine here in Wisconsin.
