Write On is important to me because it provides a beautiful and positive way to encourage and empower people to come together and share their stories. Visitors and residents of Door County have the opportunity with Write On to learn the art of communication and discover the benefits of writing as a healing tool and means of self-discovery and growth, share and record intergenerational stories with family and friends, and experience the power of voice.
