Introducing Gravedigger’s Pen

Past LVW Intern, Kara Joyce, has recently started a new writing exercise called Gravedigger’s Pen.

The exercise mixes the appreciation and beauty of grave art with the beauty of your writing. You can even showcase the writing you do on a web forum at gravediggerspen.com.

If you’re interested in the project or have any questions, please visit the Gravedigger’s Pen website or email Kara at karajoyce94@gmail.com.
