My preferred genres include: nonfiction, memoir, and humor. My big project is researching and writing a historical story which takes place in the Puget Sound area in the first half of the 1900s. My research has involved oral histories, visits to the Northwest rooms of local libraries and to historical museums, as well as the National Archives. It's been an interesting journey, even before I started pulling the pieces together into the story!
I have belonged to 3 writers' groups over a period of years. I found that I enjoyed the interactive process of sharing ideas, learning through various writing practice techniques and exercises, and being part of the critique process.
Hi! After years of writing professionally for my job, I took several creative writing classes. I have been researching and writing a nonfiction story. I stopped for awhile, but am now ready to restart and would like the energy of a group.
