On my radio show, Prose, Poetry & Purpose, guest writers share how they hope to inspire positive social change in the world, one reader at a time.
My political blog and published works aimed at increasing political literacy and lifelong engagement.
“When the ancient controls the present, death is no barrier.” From my YA novel, The Ghost Lords. Welcome to a present you never imagined & characters you can’t forget.
A series of flash fiction vignettes imagining an island community that becomes cut off from the rest of the world, without warning. What might happen?
Produced and hosted by islander March Twisdale, Prose, Poetry & Purpose gives guest writers an entire hour to share how they hope to inspire positive social change in the world, one reader (and one listener) at a time. PP&P never fails to illuminate our understanding of the world, and its people, in an entertaining and thought-provoking way.
“March is a very warm and intensely intelligent host. You will thoroughly enjoy being interviewed with her for a show when the time comes. Add an extra hour to your schedule to chat afterwards. She’s a gem.”
–James Lyons-Weiler, PhD
The United States of America is a unique country. One of a hundred and ninety-five unique countries, all of which are trying to come up with successful strategies for living together in this century. On some social issues, we barely make the cut as a “developed” nation, leaving many of us to wonder, “What’s going wrong and who can we learn from?”
Focus On! is designed to seek answers to this crucial question through the insightful perspectives and voices of individuals living within other cultures/countries. Why did America bail out its banks, while Iceland jailed its Banksters? How has Switzerland found the balance between high gun ownership and low gun violence? What strategies are helping the Netherlands bring hard drug use an all time low? What can we learn from Denmark, when it comes to homelessness and not just free college – but “paid to go to school” college? The social challenges of our time have solutions, if we are willing to open our eyes and seek them abroad.
In the same way that Bernie Sanders’ record-breaking crowd-funding directly challenged the chokehold of the 1% on America’s government, Patreon gives us – the common people – the power to reshape the world, one inspired creator at a time.
