“Cherish your solitude.
Take trains by yourself to places you
have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars.
Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you
stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t
want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even
if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be
liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than
finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.”

Over the years Eyes + Words has turned into a wonderful budding family of over fifteen thousand people across all platforms. It’s surreal and humbling to know that the art of poetry and story is alive and thriving. That being said, I hope that the creation of the Eyes + Words Writers Group serves as a vehicle and launch pad to help and support writers and the aspiring ones to keep manifesting words that many out there are searching for everyday. So go on and contribute, lets elevate together. Everyone is encouraged to share their experiences with anything involving writing.
