Cultural Writing. Poetry. Fiction. Essays. The 6th Anthology from WriteGirl Publications, LINES OF VELOCITY is a wondrous and diverse collection--stories, poems, songs, musings, rants and essays--showcasing the unique and eclectic female voices of new and accomplished writers from WriteGirl. These girls and women speak freely and share openly on everything from the intensity of a teenager's bad day to the exhilaration of finding love in urban Los Angeles. Touching on both personal and universal themes in response to the many worlds they live in, the WriteGirls invite you to spend some time exploring their words that move! Includes writing experiments from monthly workshops of the WriteGirl season. "LINES OF VELOCITY sparks with the lively intelligence of gifted young writers discovering the power of language"--Suzanne Lummis. "LINES OF VELOCITY is full of magic. Not just the wonder of raw, vivid writing, but also the alchemy of writers, leaping across age and cultural divides to inspire each other. The resulting work crackles with energy"--Carol Flint.
