Learning to Heal wins WCSA Tillie Olsen Creative Writing Award!

Aug 23rd, 2019

Learning to Heal edited by Jeanne Bryner and Cortney Davis. Kent State University PressThe Working-Class Studies Association (WCSA) aims to develop and promote multiple forms of scholarship, teaching, and activism related to working class life and cultures.

“The breadth of writing is outstanding—as co-editor Jeanne Brynner notes in her introduction, the age span of contributors ranges from recent graduates in their twenties to elders in their nineties. The anthology is also diverse in ‘gender, race, nationality, socioeconomic opportunity, and education,’ thereby sharing a range of experiences and, perhaps, changing and informing perspectives about who a nurse is and what a nurse does. At the same time, the writing is emotionally strong, creatively composed, and an important addition to the literature of ‘what work is.’ Learning to Heal should be required reading in all nursing schools.”
