Your Inspiration for March



This March, we invite you to reconvene with us at Lou & Grey as we explore our interpretations of the theme "renew". As always, you are welcome to respond to the prompt literally and figuratively: what it means to re-commit to an apartment for the first time, kicking off a new business venture, or coming back from a negative experience with a differing worldview. We want to know: what does "renew" mean to you?

You may respond to the prompt in whichever literary method you please: song, poem, short story, script, etc. All we ask is that you keep your work limited to a maximum of 2 pages or 5-7 minutes spoken aloud.
