"The primary Imagination I hold to be the living power and prime agent of all human perception, and as a repetition in the finite mind of the eternal act of creation in the infinite I AM."
The Imagination and Creativity are essential to being alive. They transport us to fictional worlds, broaden our understanding of differences among people, expand our knowledge of the worlds around us, and allow us insight into our inner lives.
The Write Launch is about writing and, by extension, our common humanity. This is our vision. To delve into the Imagination as manifested in the written word and to inspire writers to seek the Creativity that lives within. To bring forth our vision of the Humanities Decade.
We believe that
- acts of the Imagination are at the core of life itself.
- writing engages the Imagination and Creativity.
- the act of writing serves the principles and values of the Humanities.
- nurturing the Imagination and Creativity enlightens writers, readers, thinkers, and doers.
- sharing a sense of purpose and commitment inspires as well as it challenges.
- the Humanities are not distractions but vital to realizing the Imagination and Creativity in our common humanity.
The Write Launch has been an idea for some time, originally conceived as the Featured Writers section on bookscover2cover. Back then, bookscover2cover published book reviews and original writing, but with the passage of time we determined that the featured writers needed their own site.
Thus, The Write Launch began.
Today, book reviews and author interviews define bookscover2cover, but exceptional pieces of original work by selected authors and poets now have a home at The Write Launch. This is what The Write Launch is about: the creative work these talented authors and poets have forged through the force of their imagination. It is a privilege to share their work with you.
Enjoy, engage, and reflect on what you read here and consider publishing your original short story, poetry, creative nonfiction, novel excerpt or novella on The Write Launch.
