and the winners are…

Thanks to all of you who posted a comment in response to my post about Patricia Zaballos’ wonderful new book, Workshops Work!  The winners of the three ebooks are Michelle of the Parent Vortex, Maria, and Tee! Patricia will be in touch with you soon via email.

Happy reading, friends, and as soon as I pull my head out of my pile of freelance work, I’ll be back.

I have been teaching creative writing for almost twenty years. Reading about other women’s lives and experiences has expanded my world. To be able to walk in someone else’s shoes, whether it’s for a moment or an hour or a few days, is an incredible gift, providing me with insight into the human experience. It takes courage to write your truths, especially if it doesn’t seem as though anyone cares, as though anyone is listening. Let me tell you: your stories matter, I’m listening, and I’m here to help you find the heart of those truths, to get them down on the page, to craft them, and to send them out into the world. Together, we will change the world, one story at a time.
