A WTP Voice & Vision
By Heidi Stauff, WTP Video Producer
The idea for Voice & Vision evolved in our Woven Tale Forum, where members are actively conversing on ways to support each other as writers and artists, brainstorming ways to work together. These collaborations, where the literary meets the arts, we hope serve as enhancements of these already resonate individual works.
