Journal of Ordinary Thought Release Reading

The Neighborhood Writing Alliance celebrates the newest release of the Journal of Ordinary Thought. This issue focuses on the theme of transportation with an introduction by Richard Cahan.  Published writers will read their thoughts, insights, and stories about transportation.

The Journal of Ordinary Thought (JOT) publishes reflections people make on their personal histories and everyday experiences. It is founded on the propositions 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. JOT strives to be a vehicle for reflection, communication, and change. The Journal of Ordinary Thought was founded Hal Adams in 1991 and is published by the Neighborhood Writing Alliance.
