No One Succeeds Alone
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” Yoko Ono
I have a slight tendency to overextend myself. Stop laughing. First hear me out.
So 17 years ago I founded a writers’ festival, then expanded it to include a Writer in Residence Program for emerging writers and later added an Authors in the School Program to provide kids in our community access to authors and their wonderful books. And recently we’ve pilot tested a Spring Reading series. Okay, maybe you do have cause to laugh at my use of the word, slight in the last paragraph.
But in my defence, I didn’t get here alone. No one ever does. I’m not pointing fingers, but I know this festival could not have become what it is today without a great deal of support for my modest dream. All I thought I wanted was to provide educational opportunities for writers and events for readers right here in this community.
