About The Story You Need to Tell Project
A couple of years ago, Sandra Marinella’s doctor uttered the three most feared words in the English language, “You have cancer.” While undergoing treatment she left teaching and turned to writing as a way of healing. As she healed, she began working with cancer patients and veterans on their writing. These storytellers shed a profound light on the power of writing to help us heal. Her new book and her new project, The Story You Need to Tell, are focused on sharing the ways writing can be used to help us heal by rediscovering our voice, rewriting our shattered experiences, and moving us forward.
