Ancestors Calling

Do you speak to the dead? Just kidding, except… not really. As writers, our ancestral history breathes through our bodies and appears on the written page, whether we realize it or not. The stories of those who came before us—and the legacies they bear, for better or worse—are what we carry. We'll explore ancestors, both known and unknown, through a series of micro narratives (300 words or less) and prose poems. No Ouija boards required.
