Everyone has genius. Everyone has voice. Everyone can write.


Our Philosophy


We all have within us: our attendant spirit present from birth; innate ability or inclination, which is the oldest Latin definition of “genius.”  This is true whether you can barely hold a pen or are headed to Harvard.

Writing opens us to our genius. Our words—our essence—when unleashed, spill forth in a floodgate of expression, even if our letters look like chicken scrawl or our misspelled words barely make sense.
