Say it Like You Mean It! Manifestos feature concentrated writing that exists to challenge, draw attention, and provoke. Choose a position, a mantra, an oath—then spell it out on a single sheet of paper. Whether you focus on content or font design, make every mark count! You can try a classic numbered-clause manifesto, or make it short and sweet – a one sentence meme, or craft a mission statement a la President Kennedy’s “This nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.” Explore the possibilities!
