"There’s something about a competition that spurs creativity and productivity, even if you wouldn’t consider yourself a competitive person. For me, the Write Michigan contest was the catalyst for diving much deeper into creative writing than I’ve previously gone. Writing literally opens up new worlds — worlds you can shape any way you like. It’s very liberating. There is not enough public encouragement for creativity, and that is why I’m so thankful for Write Michigan."
