Stories of Hope: Life in the Delta by Writing for the Soul Workshop™ 

Life in the Delta is the third release in our Stories of Hope series. For those who submitted their stories while accessing our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ program throughout the Delta, this was an educationalspiritual and emotional journey for them.  True to the series, this is a compilation of heart wrenching, and liberating short stories written by students in Arkansas.

After seven years of piloting and testing Writing for the Soul Workshop™, Eric took the program home to the Arkansas Delta where he was born and raised. The region runs along the Mississippi River from Eudora north to Blytheville and as far west as Little Rock.

Through his efforts, students living in the Arkansas Delta were able to access our unique writing program. The stories collected in this book is what happens when we bring Emotional Intelligence and passion together in a way that offers permanent life changing impact. Many of those who shared their stories developed a love of writing as a result. Available Spring 2019.
