What is this? Advice Column #2


As a group, our class imagined a character full of fears, dreams and secrets.

Our character is a woman from Peoria, Illinois a mid-sized river town in central Illinois. She needs a better job. She’s pregnant, but the baby’s father doesn’t know. She wants badly to leave Peoria, but she is afraid to leave her sick, elderly mother.

Each writer was asked to assume the character of the woman, writing about her troubles to her favorite advice columnist.  Then, the writer must switch point of view and become the advice columnist, writing a letter in response.
