“We publish and distribute books not ranked in traditional circles in our industry. A genre we refer to as “Cathartic Literature” sometimes referred to as ‘misery lit’ category which is biographical in nature, and usually about the impact of traumatic events in childhood, and the impact of dealing with those experiences.
We consider our focus “cathartic lit” because our writing program experience tells us that these stories are that of catharsis, or discharge of pent-up emotions so as to result in the alleviation of symptoms or the permanent relief of the condition caused by traumatic experiences.
As a publisher, you could say that our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ program fills the need for books about trauma and abuse with deeper meanings to them. Books that leave the reader feeling inspired. Like the caterpillar whose cathartic change becomes the most beautiful of butterflies, our books will leave you inspired and changed, like the authors that penned them.” -Eric L. Jones, Sr., Publisher & Creator of Writing for the Soul Workshop™
