After a year of writing down the plots and characters that sprang from my brain, like Athena from Zeus, I have finally decided to share them with more than my wonderful critique partners.
Conveniently, I have also landed my dream job of teaching creative writing and journalism to middle school students, giving me a glorious abundance of guest writers and contributors to make this blog something more than a personal cathartic expulsion.
So I have created this online playground where I and my students can carouse (well, I will carouse- students shall just frolic), explore, experiment and discover the wonders of writing and publishing.
Unfortunately, I have to wait until August to add students. Until then, it’s all me.
So, for whatever audience we gain- here’s what you’re signing up for:
- Weekly posts highlighting the writing that my students and I are creating
- Resource pages on the craft and practice of writing (and journalism)
- Writing Prompts and Inspirational Sparks
- Whatever else I, The Commander of Creativity and Tyrant of the Blog, deem acceptable to publish
I hope you enjoy!
