Sidewalk Flowers is a community project I want to start. The idea is that if enough people participate, we could promote creative writing within the homeless community as a means of helping them. We could provide workshops for them to attend to and assist them with their writing, and as some sort of compensation, they receive a meal for the day. With that said, we could also interview them in hopes to make their existence visible to others. If enough pieces of writing are produced, we could publish an anthology to continue supporting the project all while providing more goods for these “sidewalk flowers.” I will elaborate on this project here once I finished finalizing the details, but I want you to know that this is my dream: to help others write their stories so that they could leave their footprints and be remembered.
