Introduction

I'm Allison and I've always been a writer at heart. I'd love to discuss the craft and share support with others in their writing. I grew up in Cleveland and recently moved back after earning my master's in magazine writing.

Thanks for joining! What brings you to our group?

I'm looking to get serious about writing a magazine piece or novel proposal. I'd love to share ideas and discuss the craft with other writers. Ideally, I'd like to give and get support in terms of working toward making writing goals. I also want to meet people and have fun. :)

What would you like to accomplish in your writing each month?

I want to regularly work on a project and share my progress with others. Ideally I'd like to get to a point of being published.

What is, or are the things that hold you back from your writing goals?

I put more pressing tasks first and tend to put off writing, even though it's my passion. I'd love to be around other writers who support one another in their goals.

What do you write, when you write? Fiction, non-fiction? Genre? Where in a book store would you books land?

I would love to write a non-fiction novel exploring some sort of cultural or social trend. I'd also be interested in writing a semi-autobiography funny memoir about life in America. Ideally, first I'd like to tackle a magazine piece about a cultural trend, possibly regarding women.

Are you published? Have you published? Do you want to publish? Have you considered Self-Publishing?

I used to work as a news reporter for a local newspaper, but my favorite part of it was writing opinion columns. Currently I write for an international company (blogs, consumer product copy, etc.). My long-term goal is to write a national piece.
