A reflection on my work:
Reading takes us to new places and shows us things never seen before, both in the world and in ourselves.
Writing is making. Writing helps us discover new hidden worlds.
To embrace narrative worlds is to embark on a voyage of discovery, exploring other ways of seeing and being. And in our world fraught with conflict, we all must strive to encounter one another with openness to our essential and common humanity. Stories are at the core of such striving. Stories are the basis for understanding ourselves, our communities, our histories, and our collective future. The stories individuals know help determine what kind of lives they can live. Great stories give us a glimpse of the human condition, they help us understand difference, they broaden our horizons.
What is WorldLiterate? It is Mia Zamora’s personal blog.
Worldliterate is a place where I can reflect, muse, and play when thinking about stories and why they matter. What does it mean to be literate in the 21st century? What does it mean to be a global citizen? And what role might stories play in understanding this world we share? WorldLiterate is my open journal, a place to share and learn.
