|Hi. Welcome to
the Fall 2001 of "In Our Own Words," the Ezine from
We are a grass roots organization, not a corporate entity, so we don't dance to the dollar sign. You can expect to find thought- provoking, creative, alternative writing, information and politics right here. We offer the "People Before Profits Poetry Prize" each year and offer all kinds of other stuff for writers, poets, students, educators, spiritual types, feminists, humanists, tradespeople and activists. We're people who follow their conscience, but like to have fun too!
The writers in this edition of "In Our Own Words" range in age from their 20s to their 80s. Much of the writing came from creative
writing classes held in Oakland, California, composition classes in San Francisco, CA and from writers across the country who sumbitted writing to "In Our Own Words" or our poetry contests.
is simple: Writers respond to life; they chronicle our times
and remind us what it is like to be human.
