NCC Students Contribute to Published Book

Book comes out based on Writing Wrongs project

Mia Rossi,

Two communication design students, Nina Renna and Marissa Dunbar, participated in the Writing Wrongs project in September 2018. Students apply, submit writing samples and a resume in order to be chosen to take part in the project. 

Writing Wrongs is a literary journalism project intended to immerse students in a specific societal issue. Through texts and photographs, they tell the stories of those different and often-ignored perspectives that challenge stereotypes and prejudices. The theme for 2018 was domestic violence and sexual assault.

Renna, along with James Burton from Widener University, designed the resulting student-created 56-page book that came from their participation in Writing Wrongs. Dunbar chose to participate as one of seven journalists.

The book, Strength in Vulnerability: Reclaimed Voices of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers worldwide. Your purchase directly supports the Writing Wrongs program and allows other students to explore social issues and share the stories of local community members.
