Featured Reader: Donna Jenson

Featured Reader: Donna Jenson founded Time To Tell™ in 2009 with a mission to spark stories from lives
affected by incest and sexual abuse to be told and heard. It is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas,
a non-profit arts service organization. She wrote and performs her one-woman play, What She
Knows: One Woman’s Way Through Incest to Joy, which is based on her own experience of
surviving incest and what she did to make her life worth living. She performs her play at
conferences, for organizations focused on boys who have sexually abused others, girls in prison,
college students, domestic violence and sexual assault advocates, and communities in need of
healing. She leads Time To Tell What We Know writing and mindfulness workshops for survivors.
She is the Board President of the non-profit MERGE: Transforming masculinity to advance gender
equality. Donna is a leader, counselor and organizer who built grassroots women’s centers in New
York City during the 1970’s and 1980’s and is still active in the leadership development consulting
and training practice she established in 1986. Her book, Healing My Life from Incest to Joy, is a
narrative of the choices she made and experiences she had that helped her heal from her childhood
trauma. Published by Levellers Press, Amherst, MA.  www.timetotell.org

Bring Your Poetry! Bring Your Prose! Find Your Public! Uplift Our Souls!

Here’s how it works: A featured writer reads recent work and describes the journey to publication, followed by audience Q & A. Then the floor opens to other writers—published or not—for five minutes each. Hint: If you want to read, put your name in the hat before 3:15!
