In this episode of Giving Voice to Your Courage, I'll be speaking with Theo Pauline Nestor, author of Writing is my Drink (A Writer's Story of Finding Her Voice and How You Can Too.) about the lessons of courage and how they can be applied to everyday living.
Theo Pauline Nestor is the author of Writing Is My Drink: A Writer’s Story of Finding Her Voice (And a Guide to How You Can Too) (Simon & Schuster, 2013) and How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed: A Memoir of Starting Over (Crown, 2008), which was selected by Kirkus Reviews as a 2008 Top Pick for Reading Groups and as a Target “Breakout Book.” She holds and MA in English Literature from San Francisco State University and an MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction) from the University of Washington. Nestor also produces events for writers such as the Wild Mountain Memoir Retreat, Bird by Bird & Beyond, and the Black Mesa Writers’ Intensive, featuring talks by literary leaders such as Anne Lamott, Cheryl Strayed, Julia Cameron, and Natalie Goldberg.
In this episode of Giving Voice to Your Courage, I'll be interviewing Ernie Boxall who is penning his book about his visit to Israel. We'll be discussing some of the lessons of courage he experienced and how they've transformed him as well as impacted his ability to live courageously and what it means for writing a memoir.
Dorit Sasson of Giving Voice to Your Courage, interviews Bob Walicki, a Pittsburgh based poet and the curator of VERSIFY, a monthly reading series in Pittsburgh, on the role courage has taken him from challenging the traditional roles of what it means to be a sensitive man in a field that looks on his poetic sensitivity as a weakness.
His work has appeared in HEArt, Stone Highway Review, Uppagus, The Kentucky Review,Grasslimb, and on the radio show Prosody. He won 1st runner up in the 2013 Finishing Line Open Chapbook Competition and was awarded finalist in the 2013 Concrete Wolf Chapbook Competition. He currently has two chapbooks published: A Room Full of Trees (Red Bird Chapbooks, 2014) and The Almost Sound of Snow Falling (Night Ballet Press, 2015). He lives in Verona, PA with his wife, Lynne, and two cats.
Bob Walicki has worked for years in the construction industry and as a plumber. As a poet, he's been the target of prejudices because he didn't fit into those traditional roles. Often he has to hide being a poet in the building trades industry though he says, "recently it's been liberating to write about those experiences in my new chapbook, "The Almost Sound of Snow Falling."
In this episode of Giving Voice to Your Courage, Dorit Sasson interviews Pamela Olson, memoirist of Fast Times in Palestine..."a moving, inspiring account of life in Palestine that's enormously informative yet reads like a novel... Part adventure story, part searing reportage, part love story."
Pamela's story could just be any Westerner's story, even mine.
My relationship with understanding the life in the Middle East was also informed by headlines and stereotypes.
On this episode, we'll talk about the courage it took for Pamela to break free from these stereotypes and to connect with the reality she was thrown into.

In this episosde of Giving Voice to Your Courage, I'll be interviewing Karen Lee Elizabeth, author of the memoir, The Full Catastrophe about the courage it took to live through an abusive marriage and to subsequently, write about it.
This book conveys Karen's story, a woman who overcame serious adversity of an 'invisible' kind and was able to not only to recover but also to gain from the ordeal. Through the lines of this book, her authentic voice emerges - conveying unutterable suffering, her resilience and her inspirational transformation. A unique document of the indomitable human spirit."
