This is a group for trauma stories. Writers often feel like no one wants to hear about it. How do you write about trauma without re-traumatizing the reader? How do you make it a gift rather than a burden? Think of Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. Trauma stories can be told and retold, each time from a different distance and perspective. Writing about trauma can be healing for the writer and the reader, though it has to be carefully, meticulously revised and revised and crafted so it is not just a "spill." Post as many stories as you want. This seems to be a very slow-moving group.
