Product description

About the Author

Alyssa Waugh is a professor of writing at King's College in northeast PA, holding an M.A. and M.F.A. in creative writing with a concentration in fiction. She is also a copy editor for Etruscan Press, a manuscript reader for the James Jones Novel Fellowship, and instructs fiction writing workshops at Wilkes University. Alyssa has had short stories published in Beyond Science Fiction Literary Magazine and won first place in Inkitt's Running Scared horror story competition. In October 2017 she published Hell's Laughter, an allegorical collection of horror and fantasy stories about women's issues. A proud feminist, Waugh engineered Positive Reflections at King's College to celebrate healthy body image and works with the Women's Studies department on other feminist projects including revamping the way the college approaches help for sexual assault victims. Alyssa has never understood where the notion of women as "the weaker sex" originated. She comes from a long line of strong women from her great grandmother, Bronislawa Frantz who immigrated from Poland, to her grandmother, Helen Puzio, a Depression survivor who lost her mom at age 10 and moved to NYC to work at age 14 (she just turned 96 and is hoping to live to see the first woman US president), to her mother Elaine Waugh: full-time mom, full-time underpaid and underappreciated teacher, full-time feminist. She has also been fortunate to have supportive feminist men in her life including her father, her three brothers, and her boyfriend.

Review

"In my life and work, I have learned that the experiences shared in Alyssa Waugh's I AM STRENGTH are all too common. That's why strong and insightful voices like the ones brought together in this collection are so important--they remind us that we are not alone, that we have so much to share, and that our sharing has the power to help others feel seen and supported in their own lives. These stories are a gift..."

Chloé McFeters, director of You Look a Lot Like Me and author of Still, But Not Silent

"The stories in I AM STRENGTH are like long, silk strands of what it means to be a woman. Every woman will find a point of recognition in this collection. From Bryne Lewis' powerful meditation on when and how to escape to Amber Fallon's tension-filled tale of learning to heed the red flags, these stories will leave you both breathless and hopeful all at once. In this collection, there are threads of love, lust, longing, fear, abandonment, abuse, strength, survival, and everything in between--woven beautifully together to comprise the fabric of femininity. This collection of stories is a must read."

--Amye Archer, author of Fat Girl Skinny and editor of My Body, My Words.

"I AM STRENGTH is just that. Packed full of courage and inspiration. Something to embolden, heal, and encourage women of all generations and backgrounds. Build each other up, my dear women. Share your challenges, your triumphs, your losses, and your victories, in whatever way works best for you, as these brave women have done. We all need more of this. Thank you to all the contributors and editors of this amazing book, for creating a gift to the rest of us."

--Shannon Watson, Managing Editor of Greed Media

"What makes this compilation extraordinary is that it does not rely on celebrity or well-established writers for content. This book gives voice to women who have remained voiceless for too long. It reminds us of the heroism of women facing what most casually dismiss as common challenges of life. It illuminates the courage and resilience, the resourcefulness and commitment women deploy daily to survive in a world where discrimination and injustice, not to mention cruelty, are all too common. It reminds us that small miracles happen daily. Refresh your faith in humanity here."

--Tamra Lucid, blogger for Reality Sandwich, music and documentary producer at Lucid Nation Media
