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.
