I have enjoyed creative writing my whole life. I wrote my first award-winning story in first grade. I have co-authored three anthologies of creative works, and my stories have been published in print and on-line publications. I love to share my enthusiasm for writing with others!
Students should bring paper and pencils/pens to class. Optional handouts may be provided for enrolled students and will be uploaded to the classroom.
