Honoring M.C. Richards:
Centering Wholeness in the Art of Daily Life

If you have studied with M.C. Richards, knew her personally, or been influenced in your creative expression through one of her talks, poems, or books - then please consider writing a short essay on her influence and how you apply it in your creative practice or daily life.  

We can not pay for essays, but will post every essay we receive here at as they are received.  If there is a large response, then we will do our best to raise money for a book publication of the essays. We hope to give the first 100 published essays a free copy of the book, and for every book sold, contribute a book to a person in need.  We are currently looking into "book re-gifting" possibilities as well.  
Categories for essays can include M.C.'s influence through her poetry, educational philosophy, pottery, agriculture as art, painting, and the Big art of daily life.
