Project Empowerment: A Video Documentary of Process and Reflection, Ivana Evans

Ivana's piece, "Project Empowerment," is a five-part video documentary in which she reflects upon and processes the experience of making her skin condition visible.

Emergence, Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus

How do you write about the drama that is occurring in the inner world - the rich and complex landscape of dreams, active imagination and synchroncities?

Unfortunately, breaking a stigma is not that easy. One friend that I told about my ASD told me I was lying. She argued with me, telling me that she knew I was joking and that there was no way I could possibly be Autistic, that I was far too “normal.” 

Been a Long Time Leaving, Rob Goldberg

Struggling to think of an apt high-school yearbook quote, I suggested Waylon Jennings’, “I’ve been a long-time leaving but I’ll be a long-time gone,” but my mother instead convinced me to use Dickens’, “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.”  At the time I said something like, “I guess that’s a better quote Mom” and went on my way.  Now in the hindsight of 28 years of experience, my eyes involuntarily fill with tears every time I revisit this moment.  That one word “worst” covers a lot of ground.

Breaking My Heart, Julia Lewis

Breaking into the reader’s mind is the beginning of any piece of writing.  It might be as violent as a rock through a window or as subtle as habituation to an alarm clock.  The form of writing that specializes in breaking is poetry.
