Let me introduce myself. Like fog along the coast, writing has drifted in and out of my life since I was a teenager. Starting at 16, when I was a stringer for The Manchester Union Leader (Manchester, NH), through today, writing has played a role in who I am.
This website, and other efforts are an attempt to focus this energy, and hopefully talent, into something tangible. Another “career”? Success as a writer? Peace of mind? All of the above? We shall see.
Aside from the Union Leader, I have written for The Granite State News and Lake Region Courier (Wolfeboro, NH) and the Lewiston Sun Journal (Lewiston, ME). Since 2004, efforts have focused on fiction. I have been involved in A Gathering of Writers, creative writing workshops at the Maine Woman’s Writers Collection at the University of New England (Portland, ME) as well as a group of writers who meet monthly in Raymond, ME for the past three years.
Tomorrow I will join a new group at the South Portland, ME public library who meet monthly.
In addition, I am a member of The Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, an excellent resource for Maine writers. http://mainewriters.org
Again, welcome to my online world. I, and hopefully you as well, will watch it unfold.
