Just start. No matter how hard. No matter how bad. Just start. Move on

BIG ideas… Where do they come from? How do they start? How do you take a big idea and begin to turn it into something tangible? This summer we have asked recent alums to talk to you about their big ideas and how inspiration, process and creativity take their big ideas to the next level!

my prose poem

on writing poems


i steal away phrases from my mother’s gray hair.
drawing similes out of midair, i am the magician and my poem is the rabbit fresh out of the hat.

the time has come for the final trick.

god dictates while i scribble, and
every line feels holy like
they have taken the alphabet
and dipped it in wine.

words creep up my neck like spiders
in the night time
all i can do is hope for one to bite.
