I founded Authentic Writing in 1993 on the strong, studied belief that the most important thing a person can ever do in art and life is find out who that person really is.
We built upon a foundation of clear evidence that nothing is so conducive to getting at true-self reality and identity as recreating true life experiences with the written word.
False verbal and mental constructions cannot stand up to writing that is allowed to unfold organically. If all people were free of false versions of reality – able to get at their own – not only would we have more fine writing, we would have a better world.
This is what lies behind our mission.
