How to Value Your Own Thoughts

Inspired by my experience on the Literary March.

This is a meta-hybrid-poetry-blovel-memoir. Some names and identifying details have been changed to protect the privacy of individuals, and some events have been fictionalized. You can decide what’s fiction and what’s not.

Please do not ask me and instead refer to “The Death of the Author” by Roland Barthes.
