The Life Righting Collective first saw the light of day in early 2017 when Dawn Garisch and Lucy Alexander were discussing how to offer life writing courses to more sponsored participants and how to share the extraordinary writing coming out of the courses with a wider audience – both with a view to addressing South Africa’s woundedness.
Within no time, Giles Griffin had joined us with his marketing and branding experience; Johan Jordaan had not only accessed us foundation funding from the Beatrix Jordaan Trust, but was also assisting us financially on the Exco; Nina Geraghty had offered her services in the social media arena and Linda Kaoma had come onto the
Exco to help with administration. The LRC was taking shape and in that year, several fully sponsored courses were run across the country and the seeds of an LRC anthology were sown.
