"Women Who Wrote for Their Lives: The Healing Power of Creative Writing"
By: Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co, LLC
His book Women Who Wrote for Their Lives: The Healing Power of Creative Writing was mainly inspired by Frame, the late New Zealand writer who penned novels, poetry, short stories, and her own powerful autobiography.
Born in 1924, Frame passed away in 2004. During her early life, patients with severe mental health issues faced grim treatment. Days before the author was scheduled for a lobotomy, her brain surgery was cancelled when her first book of short stories won a national literary prize.
"[This book] is a stunning exploration of the intersection of mental health and the arts. Author Kenneth Bragan presents a rigorous analysis of the work and lives of five eminent female authors, demonstrating how their creative processes both reflected and helped alleviate the struggles of their mental illnesses. From Frame to Woolf to du Maurier, Bragan argues…that literary history presents us with unique strategies for betterment…allowing agency and expression to guide us therapeutically to a better understanding of the self… [it is] essential reading for anyone looking for a creative approach to betterment."
About the Author: Born in a small coal mining town near Newcastle, England, Kenneth Bragan now resides in New Zealand, "one of earth's most beautiful places."
"This insightful book delves into the therapeutic value that writing can bring to those facing mental health issues. We are very proud to be the publisher." – Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency
