    Giving Voice to All with "Sing, Unburied, Sing" Author Jesmyn Ward

    Get up close and personal with two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward.





    In this episode of Women Amplified, we explore writing as a vehicle to give a voice to others past and present. Ward’s powerful insights, however, go far beyond writing instruction. Her words serve as an important reminder that we have a responsibility to speak up and give voice to those who have been silenced or erased in whatever means of expression feels right for us.



    Sharing her real-life experiences, Ward will not just teach you about the writing process, but will help you go deep within to find your voice and inspire you to use that voice for the good of all.

Relatable and relevant

I will admit that I often find myself saying an enthusiastic “YES!” or “EXACTLY!” out loud while listening - the topics are important and well-presented.

Nely Galán was amazing!

This is the first time I’ve ever heard of Nely. After this one podcast, I’m hooked. She’s dynamite! A true inspiration, thank you so much for sharing this episode. I look forward to more!

Audio quality is a barrier

I want to listen to this, but the audio is not leveled, and it forced me to turn it off. Too hard to listen to it. One voice too quiet and the other loud and echo-y.
