“This is a writing teacher’s dream – not a how-to book, but more of a literary testimony and homage to the process of writing. A sweet balance between the practical and the spiritual, Project Canvas is concise enough for daily meditation, yet robust enough to move the writer’s soul beyond the temporary.” –Brian Dolezal, professional development and spoken word coach at Sumner Academy of Arts and Science

About the Founders

Caroline and Olivia have been friends ever since kindergarten, when they met in a homeschooling group. Their writing journey was a slow evolution over the course of many sleepovers, games of pretend, writing stories together, and finally publishing some of them.

Caroline Meek is the editor-in-chief and co-founder of Project Canvas. She’s originally from Kansas City, Kansas, where she co-authored The Drawing in of Breath and attended Sumner Academy of Arts and Sciences. Caroline has a passion for bringing writers together and is currently studying English & Creative Writing on the Publishing track at the University of Iowa. She’s been published in The Kansas City Star, Ink Lit Mag, Wordsmith, and blogs at Of Stars and Ink-Stained Things.

Olivia Rogers is the co-founder of Project Canvas. She’s originally from the great state of Kansas, where she showed sheep, competitively debated, and also became involved in politics. Olivia believes that writing is the gateway to change. She’s currently studying Political Science and Philosophy at Kansas State University, with the goal of becoming a lawyer and continuing to advocate for others.

DEAR JAMIE, LOVE RORY PLAYLIST + GIVEAWAY

In case you all missed my last post… “DEAR JAMIE, LOVE RORY” IS HERE!!!!! To continue the bloggy celebration in honor of its release,  I’m sharing the playlist I listened to while writing “Dear Jamie, Love Rory.”

Click here for the playlist!

Pretty much all of the music on this playlist was music that I listened to on my own trip to California. 
I can still remember singing along to “Take It All Back” on the way to a vineyard in Napa Valley, and playing some Mumford and Sons on repeat. I listened to this playlist on repeat while writing “Dear Jamie, Love Rory,” and it still hasn’t gotten old. And Nikki just so happens to be a fan of the Lumineers. 😉 I hope that you all enjoy listening to the playlist! =) 
And now, it’s giveaway time! 
I’m giving away a signed copy “Dear Jamie, Love Rory” and a beautiful California sticker from Kulana Stickers (check out their Etsy shop, you will want EVERYTHING). The sticker is a gorgeous picture of California covered in the state flower–poppies! It’ll look great on a notebook, a water bottle, a phone case-whatever you can dream up for it!

Still working on my photography “skills.” xD 
Aren’t they pretty? AND I AM GOING TO POINT OUT THAT COVER AGAIN (I still can’t believe my name is on there, or how pretty it is…). Enter below, but be sure to hurry! The giveaway ends on August 9!
