Most of us need help putting down words to tell our stories, speak our opinions, weave our poems, or imagine our characters. But when those words are put down for people to read, these are gifts that seem almost holy to me. I’m excited to be part of Write-on Door County’s efforts to be the place that encourages and nurtures writers of all proficiency levels. Door County, with its beauty all around and on every side, has always inspired artists. Now, because of WODC, writers, too, can create art, adding the beauty and the value of words to this wonderful place.
