What kind of writing are you interested in? Tell us about your work and what you want from this group.

I am interested in all form of writing. I write poetry, prose, short-stories and full-length novels, and everything in between. I also write non-fiction. I'm looking to converse and share with those with similar goals (writing professionally) and those with similar AND different approaches - to learn from all.

What workshops interest you; for instance, technique or motivation or appreciation events, writing skills or marketing?

All described. Particular emphasis on the professional and business aspects of writing and publishing. Also, public performance tips, practice, coaching, etc.

Are you willing to share your original work and participate in critique sessions?


What point are you at in your writing goals and this coming year what would you like to accomplish?

I have successfully published 2 works, and am in the process of publishing a 3rd and finishing a 4th. My writing goals are: To maintain my writing time commitment To disseminate, invite to, and grow the flow of distribution to my works through The Rashed Foundation To serve others who have a written gem with my professional expertise and experience, to empower them to refine and present their best works - Letting their gems shine brightest To invite eager writers to the Rashed Foundation to reach eager eyes. When I look back a year from now, I’ll see: I expanded in writing circles in Baton Rouge, greater Louisiana, and beyond. I established lasting connections and projects with music and vocal artists to join my passions of beautiful writing with beautiful vocals and music. I became established with public speaking groups - we all have a message and there are many lovely ways to deliver it. I’m joyful to be in abundance and peace.


I'm a lover of beauty, a lover of light, I share both of these in all that I write. To help give sight, help spirits take flight. Would you like a bite?
