“Creative writing nonprofit Heard is still finding ways to make noise.” Love that opening sentence! Our thanks to ALXnow editor James Cullum for featuring us on June 24, 2020. And yes, we’re excited to start virtual classes again at the Alexandria Detention Center! Here’s our executive director, Jane Collins (second from right) with Sheriff Dana Lawhorne (far right) and a few of the winner from the 2019 Heard/Alexandria Detention Center writing contest.
Yes it’s true! The Zebra was so pleased with our Quarantales stories and our executive director’s guest appearance on their Facebook Z-TV LIVE! show last week that they’ve asked Jane to host a weekly show for them! And of course she said yes because she’s not going to pass up a chance to be on TV. So, welcome to “10 Questions” where Jane asks an Alexandria leader to answer 10 (or more) professional and personal questions. And why? Well, for two reasons. First, viewers get to know our community leaders beyond their job title. Second, we want to show viewers different ways they can get involved in making our wonderful Alexandria even better and stronger!
Our founder and executive director, Jane Collins, only had half an hour to talk about all things Heard on June 18. 2020. It was a tough one, because there’s so many great things to say about us! How do you think she did? You can watch it here.
