“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” –Henry David Thoreau
Here at Northernwords, we believe in living deliberately.
We believe in observing and creating, in heartfelt exploring and dancing and sucking the marrow out of life. Northernwords is an independent press, and this site is the wild space of one who loves the wilderness. Like the quiet and wild places in nature, the creative mind doesn’t always grow by fences and rules. We recognize that. We also believe creativity should grow honestly, organically, and with much love, and that any piece of writing here, from published works to reader comments, should reflect that.
Here in this corner of the great Internet frontier you’ll find a base camp for explorers of both the natural and creative worlds. Welcome to Northernwords.
If you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you! firstname.lastname@example.org
