These Words Matter

About & Contributors

You know when you go see a really great film in the theatre, and when the credits roll, no one moves? The theatre is silent as everyone contemplates how that art matters. Sometimes, when you read a really fantastic book, the same thing happens.

In that moment of silence after finishing a truly fantastic piece of art, I always wonder what made that storyteller fall in love with writing.

That’s how “These Words Matter” came to be. I want to explore which stories we all have to thank for the birth of new, brilliant tales. Thankfully, several published writers feel the same way, and have graciously shared their first memorable reading and writing experiences.

Here’s to more reading, writing, and reshaping of our world views.
