Cover of the fall 2011 issue of the "Journal of Ordinary Thought" (detail)

Please join the Neighborhood Writing Alliance in celebrating the release of "I Am Here,” the fall 2011 issue of the Journal of Ordinary Thought.

This issue of JOT features writing from St. Leonard’s House and the Bezazian, Hall, and Mabel Manning Branch Library workshops. The issue also features photographs of NWA writers by NWA photography intern Sheila Barabad.

The Journal of Ordinary Thought publishes reflections people make on their personal histories and everyday experiences. It is founded on the proposition that every person is a philosopher. Expressing one’s thoughts fosters creativity and change, and taking control of life requires people to think about the world and communicate their thoughts to others. The Journal of Ordinary Thought is a vehicle for reflection, communication, and change.

Recorded Monday, December 5, 2011 at St. Leonard’s House.
