Why did you join this group?

I'm trying to hone my writing style to fit with career pursuits. And I enjoy the company of creative people, writers very much included, of course! ;-)

What type of writing do you most enjoy?

My academic writing had an earthy, senesually evocative quality to it that some professors loved and others despised. I've gotten over the negative feedback and I'm curious about research and writing in the field of Cultural Studies. Only I won't be writing in Academy-speak.

What type of book do you most enjoy reading?

Who is your favorite author/poet?

No answer yet


I just moved back here after doing my MA in French at Northwestern. People seem to like my writing, and since I don't want to go back to school and earn another MA in education and teach French, I'm feeling out career potentiality in writing.
