Breaking the Silence: Journeys to Recovery

SKU: FBSJR
Survivors of violence are often forced to flee - emotionally and geographically - from sites of violence. Women cross vast emotional and geographical borders in order to flee from violence to find a place of safety.

Survivors of violence are often forced to flee – emotionally and geographically – from sites of violence. Women cross vast emotional and geographical borders in order to flee from violence to find a place of safety. This year, POWA called for entries in the three categories of poetry, short stories and personal essays that describe the transformation of the flight from violence into a journey of healing.

Told from a survivor’s perspective, they paint the reader a textured emotional picture of the highs and lows, and the inconsistencies of the struggle to put themselves together again as they battle to find their centre, and reclaim their space in the world.

Entries include poetry, short stories and essays, as well as artwork from the CDP Trust. This is the fourth year of the highly successful annual POWA Women’s Writing Competition.
