This collection of poetry and prose from women in recovery is a fire walk: a searing, barefooted dash over the hot coals of desperation, despair and self-destruction. Startling, often hypnotic photographs, supplied by one of the writers, drift through the text like sparks from the embers. These women have been burned into blessedness. Duane Tucker, Actor, Writer for Screen and TV, Passenger Magazine Poet of the Year 2002 As a recovering alcoholic, A Woman's Write Strong and Free reminded me of my own struggles and haunting past. I could relate to every poem and was enthralled with the quality, honesty and raw emotion the authors brought to each piece. Thought provoking and educational, I will read it again and again. Josie Penny, author of So Few on Earth twelve months on the Dundurn Publishers bestselling list. Words to Live By - by Susan Clairmont, The Hamilton Spectator The women call it freefall. Words, moving quickly from head and heart through to pen and paper. Silence, but for the scratching of raw poetry emerging on pages. Some are lost in it. Focused. Energized. Words flow fast. Others struggle. Thoughts trickle. It is Monday night in a sparse basement room at Womankind, an addiction service operated by St. Joseph's Healthcare. A dozen women are around the table. An unlikely group who, in most ways, have little in common. What they do have in common connects them immediately and powerfully. They are all recovering addicts. Some are alcoholics, some are drug users, a good number are both. And they are all authors. A Woman's Write: Strong and Free is a collection of poetry capturing the experience of women learning to understand themselves as they come to terms with addiction.

When I wrote my first book "Something for Your Journey" I was completely focused on sharing all I had learned through the Bible and how it changed my life. All I wanted at the time was for those who were expecting changes in their life through faith to know was that their faith was the key and that God was absolutely with them. No matter what it seemed to look like. It has proven to be a great tool in spiritual growth and I love the feedback I have received from it. "Hear Me Write" is a compilation of moments in time. Moments that made a difference in my life or in the life of another. I have enjoyed looking back while putting this book together. I have also enjoyed the reminder of how very beautiful life can be as we grow and overcome the obstacles in our way. Most importantly I have enjoyed the view from my book of endless possibilities that lie ahead. I am truly proud to present to you my second book of poetry "Hear Me Write".

The Social and Cognitive Studies in Writing and Literacy Series, is devoted to books that bridge research, theory, and practice, exploring social and cognitive processes in writing and expanding our knowledge of literacy as an active constructive process--as students move from high school to college. This descriptive study of reading-to-write examines a critical point in every college student's academic performance: when he or she is faced with the task of reading a source, integrating personal ideas, and creating an individual text with a self-defined purpose. Offering an unusually comprehensive view of this process, the authors chart a group of freshmen as they study and write in their dormitories, recording their "think-aloud" strategies for reading, writing, and revising, their interpretation of the task, and their broader social, cultural, and contextual understanding of college writing. Flower, Stein, and colleagues convincingly conclude that the legacy of schooling in general makes the transition to college difficult and, more important, that the assumptions students hold and the strategies they use in undertaking this task play a significant role in their academic performance. Embracing a broad range of perspectives from rhetoric, composition, literacy research, literary and cultural theory, and cognitive psychology, this rigorous analysis treats reading-to-write as both a cognitive and social process. It will interest researchers and theoreticians in rhetoric and writing, teachers working with students in transition from high school to college, and educators involved in the links between cognition and the social process.

Modeling is one of the most effective of all teaching strategies and yet many teachers overlook this powerful tool in writing instruction. When teachers think aloud and then craft a piece of writing in front of their students, they give student writers a peek into what is possible in their own writing. In this book, Kelly Boswell shows you how to transform student writers by infusing short bursts of purposeful teacher modeling. As students watch an adult writer think, talk, and write, they can develop the skills needed in order to create writing that is both polished and purposeful. Tony Stead, educator, internationally known literacy specialist and author, says, ""Finally! Not just another book about how to teach writing, but one that targets the power of modeled writing. What a delight it is to read this professional resource that highlights the importance of this strategy as the cornerstone to successful teaching and learning of the writing process.

This book is designed to provide elementary school teachers with information, suggestions, and models for using writing in the social studies, from early primary to middle grades. There are four major chapters to the book. Chapter I is titled "Research on the Teaching of Writing." The articles in this first section move from a survey of research in writing to a survey of classroom practice in the use of writing in elementary school social studies and finally to a specific classroom study that integrates the two areas and presents specific implications for the study and teaching of writing. Chapter II is titled "Developing Readiness in Writing." The first two articles stress two important aspects of a classroom environment that nurtures and supports student writing. The remaining five articles describe techniques such as interviewing, exploring the past, and brainstorming that teachers can use to initiate writing. The title of Chapter III which contains seven articles is "Using Writing to Learn Social Studies Content." The articles describe ways in which writing can be used to help students learn social studies information or develop social studies generalizations. Another describes how writing can be used to conduct simulated field trips in the social studies classroom. The title of Chapter IV is "Combining Writing with Social Studies." Discussed are three essential supports for a successful program: a detailed curriculum guide, inservice teacher training, and cooperative teacher/administrator assessment procedures. The book also cites related resources in the ERIC system. (Author/RM)

Infuse Your Fiction with the Powerful Tug of Tension! Tension is the heart of conflict, the backbone of uncertainty, the hallmark of danger. It keeps readers guessing and characters on their toes. When you've got tension in place, stories leave readers breathless and wanting more. When it's missing, scenes feel inconsequential, plots drag, and characters meander. Learning the craft of writing can sometimes feel like a paint by numbers approach--connect compelling character A to plot event B. To avoid writing that's formulaic, predictable, and slow, How to Write a Page Turner will help you sew the threads of tension tight for an unforgettable story. You'll learn how to: • Recognize the essential tension elements of danger, conflict, uncertainty, and withholding, and add them to your fiction • Create levels of tension in your characters through flaws, dialogue, power struggles, and more • Build tension at energetic markers throughout the plot • Use intimate imagery, strong sentences, and well-chosen words to build tension in exposition While this book walks you through the key areas that need tension building, from character to plot, it also delves deeper, analyzing exceptional examples from contemporary fiction's most gripping page-turners. So as you dive into the inner conflicts of a character's deepest psyche, to the mechanics of how you reveal information to the reader, you'll also discover how to craft a story your readers can't put down!

Developmental Perspectives on Writing LILIANA TOLCHINSKY University of Barcelona, Spain The advent of the sixties is considered a crucial moment for the discovery of writing as an object worthy of intellectual inquiry (Havelock, 1986). A number of books, which came out in that decade, set the stage for this turn-to-writing. One of them was the Preface to Plato by Eric Havelock. This book, published in 1963, was to become a milestone in the discovery of literacy as a field of research (Bockheimer, 1998). Havelock (1986) referred to three more works that came out at the same time, and Bockheimer suggested adding other publications; for example La pensee sau vage by Levi Strauss (1962); The consequences of literacy by Jack Goody and Ian Watt (1963) and La geste et la parole by Laroi -Gourham (1964/65). The authors of these books were anthropologists, philosophers and sociologists who coincided in highlighting the significance of writing for human development and, more specifically, for language development. They maintained that many insti tutions, ideas, beliefs, opinions and convictions of the Western world were a by product of an 'alphabetized mind'. Writing was for them one of the pillars of subjec tivity, responsible for the rise of consciousness, for our conception of words and for our notion of true and false. Amazingly linguists, psycho linguists, psychologists and educators did not participate in the turn-to-writing. The firstl, did not give any atten- 1 There were some exceptions to this generalization.

Every poem in "As I Write These Words" seeks to take the reader on a journey with author Samir Georges. This very personal collection of poetry, begun by Samir at the age of ten and completed on his twentieth birthday, offers an invitation to travel across the tapestry of emotion and experiences he weaves. Raised in a culture that values and nurtures poetry, Samir first began writing poetry in his native language without any training. His need for expression spurred him on. From the emotion of "He Whistles as He Walks, This Man" to the charm of "Lady," he improvises every poem, writing before he thinks; to him, emotions are felt like flint and stone in the hand, long before thought sparks from between. "As I Write These Words presents an offer to dream, journey, and grow-an offer made with an open hand that is there for the taking. Contemplating quietly and fluently is he Not with speech but by mind and precision in every degree, Congratulate those who assimilate to those around them with decree. But he who cares not for the throng knows better than to be bound by such wrong, For judgment is to be awarded by deeds best unknown to the judge, Not as a tool to be handed down from a man to fool.

Is writing haunted by a categorical imperative? Does the Kantian sublime continue to shape the writer’s vocation, even for twentieth-century authors? What precise shape, form, or figure does this residue of sublimity take in the fictions that follow from it—and that leave it in ruins? This book explores these questions through readings of three authors who bear witness to an ambiguous exigency: writing as a demanding and exclusive task, at odds with life, but also a mere compulsion, a drive without end or reason, even a kind of torture. If Kafka, Blanchot, and Beckett mimic a sublime vocation in their extreme devotion to writing, they do so in full awareness that the trajectory it dictates leads not to metaphysical redemption but rather downward, into the uncanny element of fiction. As this book argues, the sublime has always been a deeply melancholy affair, even in its classical Kantian form, but it is in the attenuated speech of narrative voices progressively stripped of their resources and rewards that the true nature of this melancholy is revealed.

After I finished writing this book, I found myself noting or recognizing the stories, essays, and poems found in this book tell the story of my life. The book in short provides a look into my philosophy of life and the wisdom I use (and have used) to survive and live in a white man’s world, without going crazy or giving up. As the public reads my short essays, stories, and poems, I hope the message found in my written works will help them see and feel why I stay connected to my people and their wisdom, a wisdom that has taught me to always stay connected to mother earth and my people’s “Red Road.” I want to note the stories, essays, and poems found in my book come from both published works and works I never sent in to get published. I hope the wide range of topics found in this collection will not only touch my readers but they will also challenge them to see life under a new light, a “modern-day Red-Man’s light.” Since this book is a collection of many published and unpublished works, I felt it was best to not separate this book into chapters. I made this choice because I feel each essay, story, prose, and poem is powerful enough to stand on its own. As my readers work their way through my book, I hope they will take the time to stop and think about the message found in each written work and hopefully, in some cases, find themselves reconnecting with the land that is America and my people’s wisdom that says, “We are one with mother earth,” and “we are all born to die because life is a circle like the Native American Medicine Wheel.”
