“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re
not the first person who was ever confused and frightened
and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on
that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have
been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some
of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them, if you want to.
Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn
something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement.
And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.”
– J.D. Salinger

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.
