Tell us a little about your writing career.

I've been writing all my life but usually not formally, grabbing little jobs here and there. Experiences include writing for print and broadcast, newsletters, flyers, letters, press releases, and anything else I can get my hands on. I've tried writing fiction but I suck at it. I'm strictly a non-fiction gal.

Who are your literary influences?

Vonnegut is my man! I love how he writes short. I also appreciate Frank McCourt who was once quoted as saying "Write what you know". I carry those words with me always. I also enjoy poetry - it says so much with so little. I don't want to grab your low level emotions; I want to grab your soul. That is simply because I'm writing to yours, from mine.

What do you hope to gain from our monthly workshop?

Hopefully some useful writing skills. However, the real draw for me is to be around like minded people who also practice writing as a way of life. I write in my head all the time. Can't stop it, just happens. How about you?

Introduction

My name is Lori and I moved to the area about a year ago. Rediscovering my writing self in Indy!
