What is Literary Citizenship?
I've been asked this question many times. My answer is usually a variation of "being an active participant in the literary community."
As I've moved further down the path toward [hopeful] publication, that definition has become less of a hazy idea and more of a solid practice. My goal is always to help and be helped by championing my fellow writers and bringing new books to all the readers out there. Here are some ways I participate in the literary landscape.
Connecting with Writers
Every author I admire says to find a group of writers with whom you can share your work.
I Found My Tribe!
How lucky am I, then, that I am a part of an AMAZING group of writers who are all working towards publication? The support and camaraderie is phenomenal!
Degree conferred as of February 2023 - Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University.
Classes in genre, publication, and story elements led by incredible instructors, all of whom are published authors. Their mentorship has been key in my growth as a writer. My classmates added another level of connection that is so vitally important. We help each other every step of the way, even after graduation!
