During Wyoming Public Radio’s relationship with UW’s Master of Fine Arts program, we have also acquired some people who wanted to learn to be public radio reporters. Three people have joined us, including this next writer. Irina Zhorov is an accomplished photographer who wanted to develop her writing skills. She recently graduated from the M-F-A program. When Irina came to Wyoming from Philadelphia she had questions about her new state. Today she tells us about her conclusions in her “Letter to Wyoming.”
