Why Stories Matter

BY KIM YUHL
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 02, 2017

We live in a world brimming with stories. It begins in childhood when fairy tales shape our dreams. Stories happen in every kitchen, where recipes and family folklore are passed down from one generation to the next. We are surrounded by stories told through film, literature and music that comfort and inspire us. Stories help us communicate our beliefs while hoping others will embrace them. Kim Yuhl believes that this is why stories matter.

We All Have a Story, We All Need a Witness: Vulnerability as a Tool for Human Connection

BY ALEKSANDRA CORWIN
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

Writing a book, Aleksandra Corwin says, is like falling in love. It involves opening up the most vulnerable part of us and sharing it with others. As a book editor, Aleksandra has helped countless authors go through this journey, by being the first witness and doula to their story. Her presentation is about this process, but it is also about a critical time in her life when, for the first time, the role was reversed and she needed to accept her own vulnerability.
