Without a Net  
My husband is always telling me that I must write my book because no one seems to know about the experiences of poor and working class people in their own words.

I hadn't heard about it before, but there's already a book by working class women that does just that: Without A Net: The Female Experience of Growing Up Working Class. Contributors include Dorothy Allison, Diane Di Prima, Terri Griffith, Daisy Hernandez, Frances Varian, Eileen Myles, Shawna Kenney, Siobhan Brooks, Terry Ryan, and more. There's an excerpt by Frances Varian here. You can read other excerpts by clicking on the "more about this book" link.

Thank you
Thank you so much for your encouragement! I am at work on a memoir and poverty is definitely one of the major things I address. :)
