Shadows of Darkness Virtual Reading for Awakened Voices
September 1, 2020 - September 8, 2020
Charity Marie has been invited to do a recorded virtual reading of her short story, Shadows of Darkness. The short flash fiction piece was published in 2019 by Awakened Voices Literary Magazine. Her short story is a non-graphic, brief, first-person glimpse into the world of incest. Awakened Voices Magazine says “Shadows of Darkness” highlights the un-realities of experiencing an assault, especially when the violence comes from a close relation. With eyes closed, Charity Marie’s escape in darkness feels like it shouldn’t be more than a dream — which proves the difficulty of living with these memories. With a powerful voice and honest detail, Marie brings her experience to light and shares courage and hope for other survivors.”
Charity says, “Awakened Voices is an important literary magazine giving a voice back to those who have had theirs stolen away by sexual violence. It was a true honor to have my work included with so many other powerful voices and stories.”
Charity will pre-record the reading for Awakened Voices. Release is planned for late August/early September. The recording will be made available through Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, and this website. Stay tuned for more information as it comes available!
Awakened Voices is a magazine dedicated to giving a voice to sexual violence survivors. Using multiple artistic mediums, including writing, the digital magazine is an outlet for the vast community of survivors around the world. It’s an important step toward ending the stigma and victim blaming experienced by survivors.
