Reimagination Station

What does it mean to reimagine part of your private home as a community space? What does it take to imagine, run, work in, let go of, and play in a free in-home coworking space? What are the impacts of doing so on the homeowners, housemates/renters, neighbors, coworkers, neighborhood, city, and region?

We are living answers to these questions and offer experience-based hints for others playing with similar ideas. This flash nonfiction book was written in 4 weeks then published in less than 4 weeks to be timely, useful, and affordable for community members and friends.

Year 1 Poet

Once upon a time there was a writer who got bogged down by life. She set herself adrift and landed on a magic island where getting lost was a good thing. One day some strange women knocked on her door, walked in, and called her a poet. It was then that she remembered that she was a poet. How had she forgotten? This story is true.

Year 1 Poet is part illustrated storybook, part poetry book, and part tips from the trenches by/for those becoming poets and other kinds of artists. It’s 100 pages: an easy weekend read. Illustrated by three ridiculously humble genius friends. Purchase at your favorite local bookstore or online here…
