Book Description :

Creating books that will change your life Healing victims of sexual assault through transformative journaling: One in six women is the victim of sexual assault. Using her own hard-won wisdom, author Jen Cross shows how to heal through journaling and personal writing. Rape victims and victims of other sexual abuse: Writing Ourselves Whole is a collection of essays and creative writing encouragements for sexual trauma survivors who want to risk writing a different story. Each short chapter offers encouragement, experience, and exercises. Sections focus on writing as a transformative practice, embodying our story, how to write trauma without retraumatization, writing joy and desire, and more. How to change your life: When you can find language for the stories that are locked inside, you can change your life. Talk therapy can only go so far for the millions of Americans struggling in the aftermath of sexual abuse and sexual assault, as well as for their partners, families, and caregivers. Survivors of childhood sexual trauma are strong and vulnerable enough to bear witness to each other's truths, to share and learn new languages for our experiences, to throw over the simplistic “victim” and “survivor” narratives that permeate mainstream media in favor of narratives that are fragmented, complicated, messy, and ultimately more whole. Sexual assault survivors can heal themselves: Sexual trauma survivor communities (and their allies) have the capacity to hold and hear one another's stories – we do not have to relegate ourselves solely to the individual isolation of the therapist's office. We do not need to be afraid, as a community of fractured, harmed and healing survivors, of reaching out to and supporting one another. Books such as Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way, Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones and Louise DeSalvo's Writing as a Way of Healing beautifully describe the power of writing and offer practices for readers to engage with individually. Yet few creative writing or creative recovery books explicitly address sexual trauma survivor struggles to find language for their experience, nor do they describe the empowerment we might find in discovering language and expression for our delight, desire, and joy as well as our loss and pain. Writing Ourselves Whole specifically addresses the power of connecting with others who share our experience and can support us in finding language for subjects we not only are not supposed to talk about in polite company, but aren't even supposed to articulate to ourselves. Transformative journaling: Writing Ourselves Whole acknowledges the radical and profound impact of a creative healing community for trauma survivors, and includes suggestions for those seeking to create a peer writing group in their own communities. Writing Ourselves Whole rises out of the intersection of Natalie Goldberg's groundbreaking Writing Down the Bones, the powerful Trauma and Recovery by Judith Herman, and the hopeful, angry struggle of Inga Muscio's Cunt. What You'll Learn Inside Writing Ourselves Whole: How to reconnect with your creative instinct through freewriting How freewriting can help you reclaim the parts of yourself, and your history, that you were never supposed to be able to name How "restorying" the old myths about sexual trauma survivors can set you free How a consistent writing practice can help reconnect you with your creative genius How (and why) to make writing part of your regular self-care routine — and why, if you don’t have a self-care routine, it’s time to develop one Why writing about your desires is at least as important as writing about violence The profound joy and power of writing in community and solidarity with other survivors

Book Description :

Using Your Words to Heal A holistic approach to recovering from trauma. Creative writing is increasingly becoming a go-to method for trauma recovery. There is great power in the written word, and even more so when those words are our own. Journaling provides a cathartic release of emotions because it allows us to not only process past experiences but also reflect on how we’re feeling in the present moment. In this way, writing is one of the most easily accessible self-care practices. Give voice to what has been silenced. Healing from trauma can be a slow and painful process, especially for sexual trauma survivors, who are often shamed into keeping their experience to themselves. This companion journal to Jen Cross's book Writing Ourselves Whole is a space to put the pain on a page, and in doing so, release the hold it has on us and restore our bodies and minds. Creativity as a tool for change. Trauma and violence leave a distinct mark on our lives, one that is not easily erased. Writing on our own or with a community or group can be an extremely transformative process for creating change both within ourselves and socially. It encourages discussions about mental and emotional health that lead to finding more approaches to healing. Jen Cross has worked with sexual trauma survivors for over fifteen years and founded an organization that is devoted to creating spaces for survivors to write and talk about their experiences. In this self-help journal, you will find: A 60-day guided journey to healing from your experience Sixteen writing exercises that gently prompt writers deeper into their experiences and into renewal Follow-up readings, additional exercises, and suggested uses for your writing If you’ve worked through books such as Start Where You Are, Healing the Wounded Heart, and Present, Not Perfect then Our Words Restore Us will provide further support and restoration for your healing process.

Book Description :

The twenty-three selections in this volume are essays, research studies, and personal narratives by the "silent majority" in composition studies: teachers and researchers with viewpoints that Sheryl I. Fontaine and Susan Hunter note are often voiced in private conversations but seldom printed in scholarly journals or aired at professional conferences. Rather than focusing on the traditional categories of pedagogy and research, Fontaine and Hunter organize the essays into four sections: the invisible pedagogue of the discipline, the model of power that dominates composition, the ever-present but seldom heard student voice, and other voices excluded from professional development in composition studies. Contributors discuss the barriers they face as teachers, of being overwhelmed by the reality of some of their students' lives. Essayists raise questions about teaching practices that are sometimes homophobic and the effects on gay and lesbian students of the canonization of mainstream heterosexual texts. They probe the exploitation of untenured, part-time faculty?"second-class professionals" whose work is not taken seriously by their colleagues.

Book Description :

This text is a study of literacy based upon a set of correspondence, the Osborne Family Papers, 1812–1968, housed in the Special Collections Research Center of Syracuse University. A collection of some 358 boxes, it is particularly well suited for a study on literacy. In addition to the voluminous public and private correspondence of prison reformer Thomas Mott Osborne (1859–1926), a vast and rich store of the family’s literacy "works" have been carefully preserved. In addition to hundreds of letters, many between and among the women of the family, it also abounds with other literacy documents of interest such as ledgers, account books, travelogues, verse, diaries, and notes. Unusually and quite valuably, even scraps of children’s writing have been preserved, making possible studies regarding emergent literacy practices of the times.

Book Description :

Drawing on archives only recently made available, this book both explores a previously unknown chapter in Willa Cather's life and offers the first full portrait of two artists whose lives are as fascinating as they are unbelievable. Earl Brewster and Achsah Barlow met as New York art students, married in 1910, and spent the remainder of their lives painting and writing in Europe and India: Deeply spiritual and often impecunious, they nonetheless managed to live stylishly and to attract the friendship of people like Cather, D. H. Lawrence, and the Nehru family. Although their friendship with Lawrence is well known, that with Cather has only now come to light, though it extended from the early 1900s until Cather's death in 1947, and had a profound impact on Cather and her writing. The book concludes with a representative sampling of the Brewster-Cather materials that this book explores for the first time. Illustrated with four color plates and five black-and-white illustrations. Lucy Marks is special editions cataloger at Drew University Library. David Porter is the Tisch Family Distinguished Scholar at Skidmore College, where he teaches in the classics, English, and music departments.
