A Letter From the Editor
When I think of a live wire, I always remember a night at a restaurant, when the power went out. My friends and I were evacuated outside, and saw a downed telephone pole blocking the street, catching flame. The wires extending from it were sparking, bright light against the asphalt. I can still remember the sound of them popping and crackling.
This project sparked many things as well. It lit up a team of hard-working individuals, all excited about facilitating a place for art to thrive. It ignited the creation of seven new art pieces, inspired by seven incredibly diverse works of word. It caused us to reflect, and to redefine ourselves— to re-establish what LiveWire Journal is all about.
LiveWire seeks to create a space for a community of artists to grow together. It is interdisciplinary, collaborative, creative, and inclusive. It evolves as the culture around us evolves, reflecting the vast human experiences we all can relate to, and inspiring through the power of “someday” and “yet.”
