One of our distinguished alumni, Sharon Robino-West (also a member of the “Writer’s Room”) is featured in this portrait of the Nebraska Warrior’s Writers group. You can see a highlight from the show here, and download the full episode on iTunes.
Sharon is both a veteran and a caregiver. In the piece, Sharon speaks about developing her writing skills to help her son, a Marine veteran who suffers from PTSD related to serving in Afghanistan.
The highlight reel also features participants talking about many of the things we love and support at the WGI: the importance of a “safe space,” encouraging writing in multiple genres, and the power of writing to heal.
Take a look!
