In Running from the Shadows Stephanie Hickey tells, in her own words, how she survived abuse at the hands of a trusted family member and of how running, a simple physical activity helped her achieve mindfulness, but also to rediscover love and faith in her body - to reclaim it.

Charting her life growing up in the rolling countryside of Waterford in the safety of her beloved family to the moment her childhood was shattered, to the court case where she waived her anonymity, to how she was able to reclaim a sense of herself through the sport which became like a therapy, Running from the Shadows is told with humour, strength and incredible courage -- a book that reveals how, even when things seem at their bleakest, a run through the Irish countryside, can bring you back into the light.

Correspondences : an anthology to call for an end to direct provision
Correspondences is an anthology that pairs writers, photographers and visual artists in the direct provision system in Ireland with Irish artists and writers.
The stories, poems, images and essays you’ll find here reflect the desperation that leads to migration, the hope carried through war and devastation, and the meaningful parallels between the Irish experience of famine and emigration and the experience of asylum seekers in Ireland today.

These are stories of frustration, anger, fear, but also of love; the deep love that leads parents, siblings, and partners to seek ‘another Ithaca’ in Ireland.
‘She wanted to give us the open sky and unfolded sea.’

All proceeds from the sale of this anthology will be donated to MASI.
Our Price: : €15.00
