Holly’s Typewriter Poetry: Holly Walker on vulnerability in business

Abigail Celoria, Contributing Writer December 14, 2021
Holly’s Typewriter Poetry extends beyond its small business label. The foundation of art is an exchange of ideas and emotions between its creator and the spectators. In Walker’s business model, though, the spectators are welcomed into the creation. Her poetry is something she shares with her customers, gifting them an expression of their own emotions, experiences, or simple fantasies. It is one of the most refreshing ways of doing business in a culture often more focused on consumerism than connection.

UNCW Theatre Department presents ‘The Christians’

Kiley Woods, Staff Writer November 10, 2021
Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was just a church in the center of a small town. Now it is a place of love and for thought with thousands of people following in their pastors' footsteps, unsure of his next words or where his sermons will take them. Backed by a gospel choir, “The Christians” is both epic and unexpectedly intimate, an unflinching look at faith in America—and its power to unite or divide. The story highlights small-town living, as well as serious and at times complicated relationships.
