It’s a writer’s job to do things like find new ways to interpret everything. Nothing is safe, and nothing is permanently one thing.
As a writer, success would be to give readers an opportunity to see beauty in things which they hadn’t considered having beauty - maybe even to change people’s understanding of the word.
Exercising the empathy muscle

This entry is a reason I hold these contests...
Jon has every intention AND every likelihood of making his living as a poet and writer. A novelist, I suspect. Jon was a previous winner of one of our contests ("I'm all shook up" prompted by 800 Elvis recordings) Here, he enters the diving bell of poetry to reveal what's beneath the surface.
So glad to see that Jon Tobias heard the call to return to our site, AGAIN. Jon is a previous contest winner and one of several who stop by for a visit with ambitions to become a professional writer. He got the fire in the belly to do it! Here is his entry into our AGAIN contest. Only eight more days to enter...nuff said?
