"In a variety of disciplines, students and professionals need to be able to write public policy in a manner that inspires action and change. David Chrisinger, who teaches introduction to policy writing and research design to graduate students at the Bloomberg School, and around the country, offers a step-by-step guide to actually plan, organize, develop, write, and revise public policy. Public Policy Writing That Matters will help students and professionals overcome the default writing style to merely "explain" and teach them to write an effective piece of policy that includes complex data, clear messages, and, most importantly, has a significant impact. A nice blend of real examples from public health, education, social sciences, and environmental studies, including both good and bad writing, make the author's hands-on approach inviting and enjoyable for students and professionals. This practical, concise guide will not only aid students throughout graduate school but will also remain a reference they consult as they move through their professional careers in government, education, public health, public affairs, management, and social work. Since beginning this project, Chrisinger has also become a go-to consultant for congressional staffers and instructor of policy writing around the country. His successful approach to teaching is captured in this book"--

A seasoned writer and teacher of memoir explores both the difficulties inherent in writing about personal trauma and the techniques for doing so in a compelling way. Since 2013, David Chrisinger has taught military veterans, their families, and other trauma survivors how to make sense of and recount their stories of loss and transformation. The lessons he imparts can be used by anyone who has ever experienced trauma, particularly people with a deep need to share that experience in a way that leads to connection and understanding. In Stories Are What Save Us, Chrisinger shows—through writing exercises, memoir excerpts, and lessons he's learned from his students—the most efficient ways to uncover and effectively communicate what you've learned while fighting your life's battles, whatever they may be. Chrisinger explores both the difficulties inherent in writing about personal trauma and the techniques for doing so in a compelling way. Weaving together his journey as a writer, editor, and teacher, he reveals his own deeply personal story of family trauma and abuse and explains how his life has informed his writing. Part craft guide, part memoir, and part teacher's handbook, Stories Are What Save Us presents readers with a wide range of craft tools and storytelling structures that Chrisinger and his students have used to process conflict in their own lives, creating beautiful stories of growth and transformation. Throughout, this profoundly moving, laser-focused book exemplifies the very lessons it strives to teach. A foreword by former soldier and memoirist Brian Turner, author of My Life as a Foreign Country, and an afterword by military wife and memoirist Angela Ricketts, author of No Man's War: Irreverent Confessions of an Infantry Wife, bookend the volume.
