About E. Tara Scurry
My stories and poetry are for the curious, open-minded and brave. They are for the compassionate who believe that we are not free until all of us are free. They are for those who believe in inclusion, are eco-conscious, and who don't want to be passive bystanders to the injustice in the world. My stories are about love, social problems, self-introspection, and the divine - all from a sociological perspective.
Regardless of which genre I'm creating in, my stories and poetry are always provoking, eccentric, inclusive, and openhearted. Art has this power that absolutely nothing else has. I believe art is a powerful tool to convey and teach. My art is my storytelling.
