This Is How It Is: True Stories from South Africa by the Life Righting Collective (edited by Dawn Garisch)
09 May 2018
The Life Righting Collective runs courses for anyone who wants to learn to write about their experiences. The approach promotes self-discovery, self-recovery and more effective communication. We raise funds to make courses available to those in need of sponsorship and to provide platforms for these life stories to be published. Sharing experiences with a wide readership can help reduce discrimination and promote mutual understanding. This book aims to do just that.
