“Trauma is an intimate and frightening subject. The first draft I submitted was guarded and distant…because of Sarah’s suggestions on how I could revisit the scenes…and immerse myself in them, I’ve started writing a much better second draft. I didn’t know I was capable of it. The process has helped me heal in many ways.”
