When the continued climb seems difficult and beyond our own strength…There’s nothing like reading to encourage us to write. At present, I am reading poetry by TS Elliot. What with the snow and cabin fever setting in and all!
That may sound heavy but it fits in with this time of year, really! See or hear ‘The Journey of the Magi’ on Google, to join me. I think it infers that to see beyond we need to keep looking upwards.
When I think I have it not so easy, this poetry is levelling. It works for me.
Also, getting by is easier with a friend up front. So let us hold on tight!
It’s great to collaborate on important reading material to empower the next generation.
Glad that the Story Reading Ape is out there to care about reaching student audiences. If you know a new student arm them with a novel to keep them up to date & safe.
Previous reviewers say-
We all can get by with a little help from our friends!
Coming soon! There’s a month to wait but… You maybe interested to know that an extract from the beginning of my novel, ‘What If I Go?’ outlining the dangers from gangs of sexual abuse for students, is to be published online at ‘The Voices Project’ on 10th October. Please go to their wonderful site here-
The Voices Project is a non-judgemental venue for women, and also men, to express their personal stories and observations through poetry/prose to promote social change. The hope is to bring the voices of these individuals forward, providing a creative pathway leading to growth and empowerment, and in turn affecting everything within their lives. Although our main focus is on women’s literature, we do publish (and celebrate!) the voices of men, as it’s important we are all a part of the conversation and mission.
If you could direct traffic that way then abuse survivors could gain from the empathy found there. Thank-you!
