5th Annual "Changing Hurt to Hope: Writers Speak Out Against Domestic Violence

The Cloverdale Arts Alliance is proud to continue our partnership with the YWCA of Sonoma County in recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Each year the Y invites writers throughout Sonoma County to address the issue of domestic violence in poetry, flash fiction and memoir for October 2014’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Authors and poets are free to explore the topic from many perspectives, focusing on a more personal approach, a social level, the viewpoint from victims, children, loved ones, or those who witness the violence, or those who work in the field, such as doctors, police, therapists…the topic is wide open, and creative responses are encouraged
