Soapbox is a chapbook which shines light on a series of both social and personal issues Joan has encountered. A series of literary poems that otherwise when spoken in public may seem like rants.
Soapbox is a platform written to ignite a dialogue to be had. These dialogues will address experiences and issues usually ignored by the public due to the uncomfortable nature of their content.
If we do not address the topics which make us uncomfortable, how can we ever produce change?
Time to get on that Soapbox and tell them how you feel.
Life is a marathon full of lessons you learn along the way. There is nothing you can't learn about yourself in 26.2 miles.
Opening wounds you thought healed and sealing those which haven't. There is no stopping, there is no quitting until you cross the finish line.
Medals aren't rewards, they symbolize life lessons.
From the starting line to the finish line, Joan recaps her past and present life.
Life's Miles is a memoir that explores the life lessons Joan has learned through running.
