Kelly Writers House says
As this year's recipient of the Kelly Writers House Junior Fellows Prize, Hannah White has undertaken a project to make the Writers House a space where we can talk about issues of mental health and illness from a writers perspective. In (sort of) traditional "7–Up" style, nine community members will write/speak about literary works that touch on issues of mental (in)stability. We hope that the range of perspectives and literary works will bring together seemingly disparate subsets of the wider community—and will also reveal plenty of interesting ideas about health, culture, relationships, and what is "normal."
