Description

A. Naomi Jackson is a student in the fiction program at the University of Iowa writer’s workshop. She focuses on he ways in which fiction writing can have an influence on the rest of the world by helping others understand their own personal experiences as well as those of others. Describing new perspectives and experiences, she says, can make fiction writing “a mirror for humanity and something that both shows us who we are and shows us the potential of who we could be, both the ugly and the beautiful.”
