Testimonial

  • “I was truly thrilled to hear that these words had resonated with Oneal and the contest editors, especially because of the disturbing content. I strongly believe that one of the purposes of the artist, musician, and writer is to speak to issues we collectively face. Thank you WIPC for providing this platform for us to share our creative expressions!”
