Introducing Our Writing for Peace Advisory Panel
Among our panel members are poets, novelists, memoirists, and essayists – artists who have achieved a level of personal integrity in their work that inspires each of us to search for our own truth. Some panel members inspire us through their life choices, perhaps recognizing a calling toward peace after they were already well established in other careers. They show us that it is never too late to find personal fulfillment in working toward a greater good.
Our panel members show us the varied paths toward peace, to honoring the value of all life, committing ourselves to repairing our damaged ecosystems, respecting cultural differences, and working toward human rights and nonviolent conflict resolution between nations, communities, within families, and in our own lives.
We hope you will take the time to learn about each of our advisers, explore their work, and contemplate your own path toward peace.
