Barnhardt an Inspiring 'Telling Women's Stories' Winner

Kristen Barnhardt, sophomore Disability Advocacy in New Media major, is this year’s winner in SMSU’s “Telling Women’s Stories” creative writing contest.

There were 10 entrants in this year’s contest, each of whom could submit up to 10 pages of creative writing that focuses on women.

Barnhardt submitted three pieces: an essay, a short story, and a poem.

Her essay, "Being Dorothy," is based on the story of one of her acting experiences. Due to unexpected circumstances in the summer of 2016, she auditioned for a role in the all-abilities play, “The Wizard of Oz,” from a hospital room. She came away with the role of Dorothy, a character with a positive outlook on life.
