Robin Finn asks, “What Just Happened?” 

Robin asked Los Angeles mothers, What just happened? Over the past two years of lockdown, homeschooling, illness, isolation, and work instability due to the COVID-19 pandemic, women bore the brunt of caring for others, including children, grandchildren, parents, friends, and co-workers. Finn believes these historical narratives need to be explored, captured, and shared so she created a writing workshop “What Just Happened? Mothering Through the Pandemic and Beyond,” and a grant from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs made it a reality.

Finding Your Voice Through a Pen

When Robin Finn put her thoughts down on paper, she had no idea so many people would be interested in what she had to write. After all, she was just writing about her life parenting a child with ADHD. But she soon discovered that so many parents related to her and what she was going though. And she realized that writing can bring people from all over the world together.

She believes everyone can write, regardless of your background or experience. And through writing, Robin says you can change your life. Don’t think. Just write.
