Editorial Reviews


«There are few books in life that will leave a lasting impression on those readers who want to become writers. This is one of those exceptional books, because it gives the reader an opportunity to fully understand SPN writing. SPN is a writer’s way of liberating the soul, mind, and person. By sharing their own, and others’, narratives throughout, the authors lead by example. Any undergraduate or graduate student, faculty member, and/or administrator reading this book will immediately want to run to a computer in order to liberate their voices and enrich their lives!» (Richard Greggory Johnson III, Associate Professor, University of San Francisco)
«‘Our Stories Matter’ is a comprehensive and inspiring guide to SPN writing. This is an innovative research methodology that both informs and liberates. Like Participatory Action Research, SPN writing creates essential ways for marginalized peoples to relate to research, writing, and publication as a source of empowerment, not conquest. This book offers tangible tools for Scholarly Personal Narrators and celebrates those who have the courage, strength, and resilience to document their own liberatory stories in academic forums.» (Owen Daniel-McCarter, J.D., founding collective member of the Transformative Justice Law Project of Illinois; Instructor, DePaul University)
