124: It’s the little things. Small moments, vulnerability and opportunity with writer Cheryl Chamblee.

Cheryl Chamblee is a writer, experimenter, and mama with more than 20 years of experience as both artist and nonprofit leader.  She has written or co-written 14 plays and hundreds of short essays, but right now she’s obsessed with writing what she calls “storypoems.” Her current creative writing projects are The Letters Project and Evening Postcards. You can find her writing at onebrokenteapot.com.  

Cheryl Chamblee

In this episode, Cheryl describes her creative writing practice and the inspiration behind The Letters Project and Evening Postcards*, noticing and valuing small moments, vulnerability, intimacy, and words, words, words. As the Executive Director of the Chatham Arts Council, she also outlines the programs that are shifting to serve artists and the community given the current circumstances. I’m always grateful to speak with Cheryl and to hear her read her extraordinary writing, I bet you will be too.
