What kind of project are you working on?

I am hoping that working on a packet of poetry for submission to literary magazines will qualify me for joining this group. It's my first try at really serious, methodical creative writing, and I think submitting 6-8 good poems is a good first step, rather than a whole volume of poems.

How long have you been working on your project?

3 months

Have you been published?

One poem I've written was published in an educational magazine in Australia

Tell us a bit more about yourself.

I want to write more, and I want to get as much done before the second baby, and set myself up to carve out time, even when #2 comes. My family is quite supportive, and I'm ready to move in the direction of what I really want, creatively.


Hello! I live in Fairfax with my husband and 19 month-old baby. and someone else is living inside me, too, and is due to come out in October. I teach ESL in the evenings, and write mostly poetry. It scary but I want to do more
