There is no beginning or end to human expression and hence one either evolves their own style or follows a format that has already been invented. A diary is always a place for self-reflection and discovering the truest colours of the mind. Time can never run backwards, yet through reminiscence one can travel in both directions. The true meaning of life would be tapping into the heart of existence, and that's where one would aspire every bit of reflection to lead them.
Girl Time followed the same principles. After each performance, whether it was part of a Girl Time RYDC workshop, the summer public performance, or student artists returning to the RYDCs to perform, a “talk-back” followed.

This original account is based on the author’s experiences with incarcerated girls participating in Girl Time, a program created by a theatre company that conducts playwriting and performance workshops in youth detention centers. In addition to examining the lives of these and other formerly incarcerated girls, Girl Time shares the stories of educators who dare to teach children who have been “thrown away” by their schools and society. The girls, primarily African American teens, write their own plays, learn ensemble-building techniques, explore societal themes, and engage in self analysis as they prepare for a final performance. The book describes some of the girls and their experiences in the program, examines the implications of the school-to-prison pipeline, and offers ways for young girls to avoid incarceration. Readers will learn how the lived experiences of incarcerated girls can inform their teaching in public school classrooms and the teaching of literacy as a civil and human right. “Winn brings to mind theories of play and performance that rarely enter the professional preparation for teachers at the secondary level.” —Shirley Brice Heath, Stanford University “In the brilliant hands of Maisha T. Winn, Girl Time harvests seeds and stories about girls living in juvenile settings. . . . Penned in the ink of love, awe, despair, and dignity, the volume swings between documentary and possibility.” —From the Afterword by Michelle Fine, Graduate Center, CUNY

Author: Irene Rochas
Memoir of a Polish Girl at the Time of the Russian Revolution (1914/1924). Expanded second edition with additional photographs. Irene Rochas was born Aniela Tarnowicz in Warsaw in 1906, the youngest child in a large upper middle-class Polish family. With the outbreak of WW I in 1914, Irene and her family were stranded in Moscow, and with the further outbreak of the Bolshevik Revolution, they were able to return to their homeland only after a delay of four years. Irene's rediscovered narrative -- written when she was fifty years old and set in the form of a novel -- is a remembrance of those eventful years of her childhood in Moscow and Warsaw. In this sense, it is truly a "memoir". Yes, "danse macabre" is the dance of death, the last waltz to which we are all invited. But Irene's "Danse Macabre" -- with its inquisitive and empathetic tone... and its often searing imagery -- is less a rumination on the inevitability of death and more a testament to the vibrancy of life itself.

The women explore their personal traumas through their responses to seven fairy tales in which there was no nurturing maternal presence.Dr. Marcella Shields is a psychologist with over thirty years of experience who reveals the inspiring journeys of these women who eventually triumph over suffering and learn to rely on the bond they have formed with each other to help reclaim their passion for life. By exploring seven timeless fairy tales in which the heroine finds her way through the grief of abandonment, the women offer a deeper understanding of the significance of the mother-daughter bond and the devastating consequences for the daughter if this bond is ruptured early.The poignant life stories and dreams courageously offered by these women show how fairy tales allowed them to understand and refashion themselves, and provide a source of encouragement and hope for other women who have experienced early maternal loss. Fathers raising daughters without a consistent maternal presence will also find the reflections valuable.

This collection of poetry is about brown women trying to make standing in the patriarchal world that constantly devours their space for no good reason. It contaminates people with its asinine ideologies and makes a whole gender of the spectrum feel like an ancillary. Each poem talks about a different issue, some of which might feel universal to the whole community of women. From poems about treating women like subordinates, mannequins, victims of mental distraught to poems about transition of us women unlearning and calling out these toxic traits talking about our space and body with more authority and slowly moving to rebellion, poems talking about reformed modern princesses and things that are ‘taboo’ in the brown society that will shake its roots to the core and we will know it’s changing.
