Former Softball Player Creates Anthology Devoted to Brain Injuries
By: Victoria Griffin
The injury stripped her of basic abilities – reading, walking, speaking—and took her final season of college softball.
Now, she is using the experience to fuel the creation of Flooded, a literary anthology of fiction and creative nonfiction devoted to concussions and brain injuries.
In order to fund the project, she is launching a Kickstarter campaign October 11, 2016.
The bulk of funding will go toward contributor payments, editing, and design.
She hopes the anthology will provide an outlet for victims of brain injuries to express the emotional realities so often glazed over in favor of statistics and facts.
She also sees the anthology as a tool to educate those who have not experienced brain injuries – and those who will in the future.
Supporters can become involved with the project as ambassadors, sharing updates about Flooded with their social media networks.
