Retiree and student Suzanne O’Connell has published her first poetry collection A Prayer For Torn Stockings (Garden Oak Press). Suzanne says the Writers’ Program rekindled her passion for writing. “I had always loved to write, but never in a disciplined way, never with any knowledge behind me. It has been a stimulating creative journey.”

She praises all of her instructors, but in particular Barbara Abercrombie for her Writers Studio course. “I loved the exercises and the sense of community and am still friends with many students from the class.”

Congratulations, Suzanne!
