There are people we have known for years, and may even be close with who have a story they’ve never shared because the stigma around sexual trauma and silence is so pervasive. Through the authentic sharing of one, another person can feel freedom to share authentically as well.
True is still looking for stories from the community! If you, or someone you know wishes to contribute to the conversation around sexual trauma in a powerful way please email us at case[at]ucalgary[dot]ca. True is also seeking a graphic designer inspired by the True story, and any other person who sees an opportunity for themselves in the editing process.
Details on writing:
- it is the story writer’s choice of what style of writing they wish to use
- first draft of stories will be due April 1, 2015
- story length to be 9 pages or less, typed
- all stories will be written/published as anonymous
We hope that wherever this book ends up, the woman (or man) reading it will find it healing and empowering as well as the person writing.
