Her truth be told: a collection of short stories - Her Truth Be Told: A Collection of Short Stories - amazon.com



Karen has taken every Truth Be Told offering at Hilltop prison, starting with our first Talk to Me Circle class in fall 2010. She is now a Mentor in the Talk to Me Speaking class. When she began, she was 22. Now she is 25. When she began she could have been any cute girl with a blond ponytail — alternately shy and bold. Easily distracted. Excited about every creative exercise. A little unwilling to look straight into anyone’s eyes for more than a few seconds. She’s a talented artist and includes her fantastical images and drawings in every homework assignment.

In our core Talk to Me classes, all students must create a life-line from birth to the time they arrived in prison, noting the experiences that happened to them and the decisions they made that they believe ultimately brought them to prison.

So when Karen first attended TTM Circle, she wrote her story based on her understanding of those events. Then when she took TTM Speaking, she used the same life-line but wrote her story into a speech, containing some deeper self-awareness and also the emerging memories of her past. When she became a Mentor, she did the Mentor homework — which requires creating her life-line and speech from the time she arrived in prison to the present day: what experiences happened to her in prison, and what decisions has she made in prison that brought her to this present moment.

In January 2016, I travelled to the Gatesville Prison with Carol Waid to be a facilitator in training for Truth Be Told’s Talk To Me Writing Class. I was familiar with the prison system as I had gone behind the fence as a journalist and novelist, but this time, with TBT, I would be in service to the women of the Lane Murray Unit by helping them tell their stories. (In the classroom next to ours, Christina Wisdom and Julie Wylie were facilitating the Talk To Me Speaking class.)

Because I was completely new to TBT, Carol asked me to experience the class as a newcomer, like the women did: Doing the homework, telling my story, sharing my life. At first, I felt like I didn’t belong. I’m outside the fence. I have freedom. But I am also a woman an a mother and, just as I was hungry to hear their stories, they were eager for mine. We wanted to connect. We wanted to understand one another. We wanted to share. We wanted to heal through telling the truth about our lives, however different they are.

One of the most beautiful parts of the Talk To Me Writing and Speaking classes comes near the end of the eight weeks. Our homework is to write one or two sentences about each member of our class and how we see them. It is an opportunity to reflect on how each person has revealed their hearts over the last eight weeks.
