WNO Zoom Host
Beth Filson is the host of Writers Night Out, a Straw Dog salon. Most recently she won the 2015 Wild Light Poetry Prize from Red Hen Press, and her art was featured on the cover of The Florida Review.
Jacqueline Sheehan, Ph.D., is a New York Times Bestselling author. She is also a psychologist. Her novels include The Comet’s Tale a novel about Sojourner Truth, Lost & Found, Now & Then, and Picture This, The Center of the World, and The Tiger in the House.
I’ve taught psychology, primarily counseling and psychotherapy, at Springfield College for 32 years and have been writing for 20. Psychology and writing ask the same question, “What does it mean to be human?” Good writing does a much better job. Long, loopy sentences, stories with no clear resolution, versus the DSM? No contest.
I have two grown kids, Chelsea and Nick, one son-in-law also named Nick, and a year-old grandson name Wyatt. I write psychological articles no one reads and stories and essays that a few more do. I have the requisite unpublished novel and another novel almost done.
