Favorite quotes from this talk See all

In my writing, I prioritize my humanity and my willingness to show up as a human as more important than the medium itself. More important than the tools, the techniques, the medium, is choosing to show up as a human. As someone saying I don't have this all figured out, but here I am anyway. — Matthew Trinetti
