“In his autobiography entitled Issues, Paul Kurko talks about the resentments he had when his mom died. Resentments that eventually led him on path straight to prison.
When Paul submitted his story to our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Peer Support program, I asked him “Why do you want to share your story?” He said, “Dude, I’m worried about the younger generation coming up out there. I’m a father now, and I don’t want them to experience everything like I did. They need to know that their past does not define their future. Maybe my story will show them.”
This page turner will grab you. In it, Paul doesn’t hold back. He says what he means and means what he says. That’s why we know you’re going to love his story. It’s real.” -Eric L. Jones, Sr., Publisher
Paul submitted his story in our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Peer Support Program. TGIM Digital Publishing and Texas ReEntry Services partnered together to implement this program as a realistic criminal justice strategy that safely reduces the State’s costly reliance on incarceration– creating stronger families, less taxpayer waste, and safer communities.
The program offers men and women another chance to make a positive and encouraging difference in the world through their storytelling while allowing participants an opportunity to build self-worth, and learn a new trade. After all, we all have a story to tell! Your purchase of Paul’s eBook ensures that our participants can continue to access Writing for the Soul Workshop™ at no cost to them. 20% of all downloads benefit Texas ReEntry Services.
