Weathered Girl: An Exploration of Scribing The Indescribable And Healing Through First Person Childhood Trauma Narratives
Repository Usage Stats
This project examines autobiographical writing and the ways in which some authors use memoir as a vehicle to convey and communicate childhood trauma. Mary Anna King’s Bastards, Dorothy Allison’s Two or Three Things I Know For Sure and Wendy Lawless’ Chanel Bonfire are the texts I use to explore how writers, through the particular alchemy of truth and literature, transform heartrending stories into something meaningful for the rest of us.
