True Stories: Volume V is a wonderful collection of works produced by the graduates of The Narrative Project, an organization that supports writers in getting their books done. Cami Ostman-author, teacher, and director of The Narrative Project-and her team of story warriors walk writers through a journey from the inception of a book idea to the writing of a complete manuscript. These stories represent a sampling of stories from the 2021 cohort, and evidence that support and accountability are key to ushering stories into the world.
A well-crafted collection of stories that will invite readers to explore a range of human experiences. An enjoyable, thought-provoking, and emotionally engaging read from a group of diverse and talented writers.
—Christina A. Kemp, author of Across the Distance: Reflections on Loving and Where We Did & Did Not Find Each Other
The authors of these beautifully rendered “true stories” viscerally show us what it means to be in the world as wholly human. Their collective lived experiences invite us to traverse the many paths of wisdom, courage, and the understanding of “I am enough and I belong.”
—Randall Dills, author of The Universe at the Point of Contraction
