Writing Our Way Out: The Podcast Episode 3: Mother Love

Welcome to Writing Our Way Out, the Podcast. This is the show about writing your way toward the true core of life. This show is based on the writing workshops that Prof. David Coogan has been teaching at the Richmond City Jail for close to fifteen years now, often with college students from Virginia Commonwealth University.
