Sara Walters // July 2018

Sara Walters is a writer and Ph.D. student from East Tennessee who joined us at the Fish Factory in July of 2018. While in residence, Sara completed a draft of her yet-untitled young adult novel and worked on her doctoral research in the portrayal of trauma in the young adult genre.

Home in Tennessee, Sara is a full-time student and activist, working with liberal and democratic groups around the state, and advocating for the political arm of Planned Parenthood to promote access to affordable health care for women, LGBTQ+ people, and other marginalized groups. This activism feeds into her research on trauma, and how the language used to portray these stories impacts young women.
