About Shelby Knox
A seasoned feminist organizer, Shelby Knox knows how to utilize social media and blogging to inspire individuals and make change. With more than 8,000 followers, it’s no wonder Forbes listed her as one of “20 Inspiring Women to Follow on Twitter.” Today, Shelby is the Director of Organizing for Change.org, where her online petition in response to the irresponsible reporting of a New York Times journalist covering the gang rape of a young Texas girl received national attention and forced the Times to issue an apology and follow-up story.
Check out the article written by recent Woodhull alum, Marie Sabatino, on the work of an amazing, self-taught and visionary artist living with schizophrenia: http://www.riccomaresca.com/fluence/magazine.htm
It’s called, Melvin Way: The Man, the Pen, and the Moon, and appears in the March/April edition of fluence magazine, published by Ricco/Maresca Gallery.
Marie tells us “The Woodhull Writers Retreat has been tremendous and I feel compelled to mention that it has given me more confidence to pitch new ideas and make things happen!” Congratulations Marie!

“There is no question that there is an unseen world. The problem is, how far is it from midtown and how late is it open?” ~ Woody Allen
Ah, the paradox between poetry and practicality, art and accounting, beauty and bottom line, meaning and metrics. Especially in this results-oriented, materially-focused, high-powered metropolis that is New York, it’s often challenging to communicate the value of things we are unable to touch, see, or can be precisely measured.
After assigning some journaling to a client recently, she seemed perplexed and not too happy about it. When inquiring what was the problem, her concern she said, was because as graduate of MIT, it would be difficult without having any sort of metrics or immediate tangible outcome to guide her or let her know she was doing it ‘correctly’, which her perfectionist self needed in order to be validated in the exercise. She was not the first to be challenged by or question the effectiveness of the solution I offered, just the first to articulate it so well!

We’ve discovered that word of mouth is the best way to share our Woodhull experience with others. That is why we are writing today to ask for your help to promote our upcoming retreats in NY and CA.
