How writing can save your life: Michael Womack

Michael Womack

‘I’m not really doing it for the money, it’s something I’m passionate about…’

Michael Womack revindicates the importance of how we positively impact on others with our writing instead of measuring our success just with money. In his own words, there’s no better recipe for disappointment than doing the latter.

Michael started writing poetry in highschool. He joined the USA army and fought in Iraq. Back in Georgia he struggled with post traumatic stress disorder and depression. His first novel, From a Soldier’s Perspective, was inspired in his personal experiences. He is also the author of a poetry collection called Sexual Intimacy, Beyond Pleasure.

Listen to Michael‘s honest advice on how important is to feel passionate about your writing, because it can literally save your life!
