"The Writer Warrior: Reclaiming Our Narratives"
Fiction and nonfiction have served to entertain, to inspire, and, most importantly, to tell our stories. Jen Michalski talks about the power in making our voices heard in a time when the narrative feels further out of our reach and how, whether through social commentary, humor, fiction, fantasy, or horror, we can continue to shape the dialogue of our times.
