Are you currently working on a novel or non-fiction project?

Non-fiction: contest essay, travel essay and memoir

How far along are you?

Contest essay/memoir was accepted for publication. My memoir is half way written.

Have you participated in writers' groups before?

No, I haven't.

What (talents, characteristics) will you contribute to the group?

I'm an avid reader. I have studied literature for years and now teach my students how to study writing and language choices. I'm a great editor in terms of the technical stuff and making ideas/sentences read smoothly for the reader. I'm honest in terms of feedback: I give feedback on a daily basis (with my students and fellow teachers) with the goal of strengthening the work of the writer.


I'm a mom, teacher and a writer.
