One Earth Writing is the brainchild of Lynne Meredith Golodner, a world-renowned writer, entrepreneur and teacher of writing, and Fulbright Specialist, who has seen the sharing of stories connect people in profound ways.
Troubled by rampant disharmony around the world, Lynne yearned for a way to heal the rifts in the world and stamp out disconnection caused by fear of the unknown other. One Earth Writing brings together teenagers from disparate backgrounds and disconnected communities to write stories together, building bridges of understanding that we are all more similar than we are different. Pen in hand, fingers poised above a keyboard, the youth who engage in our programs begin to see the similarities between all people, and between communities.
The solution to our world’s strife and stress is to share our heartfelt words, and listen to those shared with us. When we hear the same themes in other people’s stories – themes of love and loss, of desire and ambition, of meaning and beauty – we realize our hearts beat in unison, and the path for peace starts at our front door.
