Writing can be a lonely art form. You’re mostly alone. And even after publishing, you see people buying your work but you wonder, “Is anyone out there really listening to me?” The same is true for most artists. They create and sacrifice and … create and sacrifice and wonder, “Does anyone hear me?” Well, I decided I wanted #houseofjune to hear us all loud and clear. At the screening of their films I organized at Spelman last week, my students and other screeners presented #houseofjune with a pile of “love letters” meant to share how their films have impacted them. The goal is to give the budding artists a warm fuzzy to pull out when times are tough and they wonder, “Why are we doing this?” Well, you have your answer.
