Where Art Can Go: Storytelling as Advocacy

But-what-do-I-do-300x295Here’s the thing: If you’re a writer, artist, or any kind of creative, your work can go further than you think.

My latest for Ploughshares Literary Magazine is an interview with a writer/advocate against domestic violence… And her tips are for all of us, whatever our medium, whatever the issues we care about.

Check it out here, then go make something. It matters.

(Meanwhile, what are some social issues you’ve thought about addressing/discussing via your art? These days I’m on about depression, domestic violence, gender inequalities, and “rape culture.” You?)
