In a solitary game like writing, getting together with people with similar priorities and concerns provides valuable support and encouragement
Presenting my creative writing at Words&Thoughts helped me to refine and improve my work as the multiple perspectives of my peers let me see it from new angles. At the same time, providing feedback to other students as the sessions made me feel part of an active and thoughtful community of writers, which was always exciting.
