What does social activism and creativity have in common? It turns out, that there is quite a lot! Creators have the power to inspire change and shape lives, and when the world around your tries to dim the light we have within, we can turn to other creatives for support and encouragement. While many creatives find themselves isolated or alone in their struggle, my guest, Emelda DeCoteau is drawing near to her tribe for strength. Emelda is a poet, writer, blogger, and activist who is using her beautiful words to draw women together in a powerful way. To her, activism and creativity are one in the same. In today’s show, she is going to show us how her writing process depends so much upon the creative community she has built and spiritual strength she draws from her words.
