Internationally exhibited fine artist Madison Cowles Serna brings you SURVIVING, an anthology of 9 visual poems created from the author's own experiences as a survivor of sexual assault. Each story is accompanied by emotive abstract imagery and arranged to encourage the reader to spend time with each passage. SURVIVING is created from moments of heartbreak, fear, and cruelty dealt from multiple perpetrators against backdrops of grainy risograph reproductions. You can feel Cowles Serna's battle with confusion, guilt, and finally, understanding her trauma. She uses her journey to empower others.
