Since June 2010, Cassie Premo Steele has been inviting friends, fellow artists, clients, and colleagues to join her in a poetry writing collaboration. Every Wednesday she asks friends to add a word to a Facebook thread and constructs a poem that weaves the spirit and intentions of all those words into one piece of writing. The result is this book. In it you will find a wide range of subjects and ideas contributed by more than 300 people from all around the world. It is an exploration on collaboration and on the artistic task of creating one song out of a multitude of different voices.
