A classroom of students typing at the typewriters in the Story of the Day exhibit

AWM Story of the Week

Every week, the AWM is excited to bring you stories written by our visitors in our Story of the Day exhibit. Check back weekly for new stories, and visit the Museum to try out our typewriters and possibly be featured here!

We think YOU’RE awesome, Shibla, and hope you make it back this year:

This place is AWESOME! I am from out of America. Iraq, to be exact. Because I am studying in the college of English language and literature there, this place really interests me. I am coming back next year for sure to do some research using the information provided in this lovely museum.

Some solid advice from a visitor:

Write what you know. The most perfect time of all would be the winter. The time in which the snow falls gracefully to the ground and covers everything with an angelic sheet of white flurries. And not one winter passed without leaving behind it the traces of that blank sheet sullied. I feel that the most important element of writing in any genre is that of honesty. We must not seek to contrive any aspect of our communication, but that first requires that we must think honest thoughts, daring to acknowledge our shortcomings and deficiencies and embracing the wide unknown.

A simple, beautiful poem:



lives overlap

years later

crossed paths

where everyone

is longing

for the

next dance
