Episode #4: Sue William Silverman

This week's guest on In Her Room is author, teacher, and advocate for women's voices Sue William Silverman. We talk openly about writing memoir, telling the hard and scary stories, and the importance of speaking truth to our experiences as women, and as writers, in this world.

As a note, this episode may be triggering to some, as we speak honestly about child abuse and incest. No specific details or experiences are shared.

We're not just telling the stories of what happened to us.
We are writing to discover our metaphors, and to go much deeper than that.
We are turning our lives into art.

Here are some of the things we discuss:
