Boothwyn, PA (PRWEB) April 26, 2005
On a crusade to create a new genre of writers "whose voices are unrecorded, undocumented and unheralded," Global Community Publishing announces the "In Your Own Words Â Your Words Matter" series of essay collections. It "captures the authentic and creative genius" of authors, parents, students, teachers and anyone who has something to say or has ever said the words, "If only I had written it down; if only I had said it sooner."
"Nearly every adult harbors some regret about leaving things unsaid, unacknowledged or unappreciated," explains Azra Buttar, teacher, mother, entrepreneur and president of Global Community Publishing. "We each have something important to say or to share. We each have a voice but seldom have a platform from which to speak or be heard. We are our own best therapists, our own best healers. Words are the gifts of the heart, and words timely said heal the deepest wounds. In the famous words of Dale Carnegie, anyone can make friends and influence people, even the not so famous or well-connected."
The idea behind the series is unique and unprecedentedÂGlobal Community Publishing collects 100 essays at a time, written by ordinary people on a myriad of subjects, and compiles them into highly-inspiring and readable books of over 200 pages, each volume comprising the "In Your Own Words Â Your Words Matter" series. Beautifully published in a handsome volume, the completed books make excellent gifts, mementos, fundraiser opportunities and organizational records, as well as providing a lasting sense of celebrity and accomplishment. In addition, the series proves to be a powerful educational tool for teachers at all levels to use in the classroom setting, whether to discuss the essay crafting process or to encourage young writers to publish their own work.
Ms. Buttar adds, "The series proves to be empowering and self-affirming for the young and the novice writer."
Inspired by the painful memory of spending $69 for a one-line entry in the "Who's Who of American High School Students" as a new immigrant mother in the mid 1970's, Ms. Buttar understands the desire parents feel to see their childrenÂs achievements in print, and feels the forum will provide this invaluable opportunity and much more. She explained, "I am especially passionate about creating a forum for members of the Armed Forces, the senior community and young students of school or college age, where they can come and write their own stories in their own words and share them, not only with friends and neighbors, but with those across the street and around the world. People are the same no matter their station, age or gender."
