“So, I guess we are who we are for
a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know
most of them. But even if we don’t have the power
to choose where we come from, we can still choose
where we go from there. We can still do things.
And we can try to feel okay about them.”
– Stephen Chbosky

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.
