Why Subscribe?

Truth & Dare offers one Truth (a writing prompt) and one Dare (an art-making gesture in the world) with each post. Also offers access to writing resources and workshops offered by Laura Moulton.

Challenge Yourself

Use the Truth & Dare prompts to better inhabit the shape of your day, to create something new and interact with people and animals in a new way.

Rest Your Mind

Each new addition will be run through a bullshit detector that screens for useless prattle, guaranteeing that your time won’t be wasted. It will also be composed with a mind toward creating opportunities for your brain to focus on one thing at a time, with fewer links to divert your attention.
