- Writer's Voice - 20140110-Jo Ann Fore and Wade Kernohan

Jo Ann Fore This week on Writers' Voices we will be diving into two seemingly disparate forms of creative expression, but perhaps we will find unexpected similarities between them. 

First, we will be joined by popular blogger Jo Ann Fore, author of "When a Woman Finds Her Voice: Overcoming Lifes' Hurts and Using Your Story to Make a Difference."  In this book, Jo Ann shares her own history as a victim of abuse and poor life choices and how she found her voice, as well as the stories of many other women who have broken the shell of silence and found healing through speaking out (or writing.) Jo Ann is also the founder of the web site WriteWhereItHurts.org, which encourages others to use writing as a healing tool.

Then, at 1:30, we welcome Fairfield resident Wade Kernohan, who was recommended to us by his publisher Rodney Charles of 1st World Publishing, also of Fairfield.  Rodney says Wade's book, "Marks on a Page" is the most unusual he has ever published.  The book is described as "an assemblage of ink strokes"  that become "expressive ideas that demonstrate the relevance of abstract art..."  and as a way to "expand your expressive repetoire."  Perhaps another way of finding your voice, symbolically?

Join us for these explorations!
