    In my thesis I was researching the social phenomena of writing and publishing books on the topic of going through difficult and challenging life experiences. This kind of literature is becoming increasingly popular, even by authors who are not professional writers. My main research question was, how writing and making stories is affecting mental states of people. I was conducting half structured interviews with three Slovenian authors of published books about coping with difficult life experiences. I was intending to gain a better introspect into how mechanisms of writing and story making affect mental health. These introspections are contributing to a better understanding of writing, as a medium of expressive arts therapy, that is accessible, due to its relative simplicity and availability, to the wide population of people.
