Welcome to The Living Stories Collective. On this website you can read interviews and posts, hear audio clips, browse through our photo galleries, share thoughts, or contact us about how to participate. 
Find transcripts of interviews that interest you by browsing through the Interviews excerpts or by typing key words or the names of specific individuals and places into the search bar. You can also search by theme, choosing from among the following categories:
  • SENSE OF PLACE
  • SOURCES OF STRENGTH
  • CREATIVITY & ART
  • FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS
  • WISDOM & ADVICE
In addition to Interviews, the website includes Glimpses, which are shorter profiles of folks we've met in passing. Just scroll through the Glimpses section or type names and subjects into the search bar; you never know who might turn up here.  The stories and glimpses contained herein become a kind of poetry.
As poet Elizabeth Alexander wrote:
Poetry (here I hear myself loudest)
is the human voice,
and are we not of interest to each other?
