My novel is titled Wave Theory.
to help inspire and be inspired -- to support others and have them support me. I'm relatively new in town - having moved here from Wisconsin summer 2010. I would love to find a small, down-to-business, serious roundtable of good writers willing to exchange serious constructive feedback.
I also love to work with kids. A few years ago I attended an "826 Valencia" training in San Francisco (Dave Eggers' ingenious chain of writing/tutoring centers for kids - see www.826national.org) , thinking to try and launch something like this in my then-home-town of Milwaukee. But our family had to move, in the middle of that particular scheme. Still, someday, I'd love to help launch a cool place where kids can explore artistic freedom and creative expression.
I've made my living as a business journalist/marketing communications person/magazine writer on family and education issues. A few years back, I gave myself permission to start writing fiction, since I've longed to write a novel since I was NINE!
Fabulous! Great thanks to Thorn for his hospitality and to all attending for valuable feedback and a highly enjoyable evening. And now, back to work!
