I walked into my college creative writing class on the first day and announced, “I hate writing, and I’m only taking this class for the credit.”
Since that time, I have written nonfiction, fiction, promotional copy, and 10 years of grant proposals for Wide Angle Youth Media, as well as the website, Twitter feed, and marketing materials. In 2010, I embarked on a series of illustrated essays to explore all the things banging around in my mind that I am driven to put on paper. Recently, I have become more interested in the act of storytelling, and have told stories onstage with the Stoop and Anecdote Storytelling.
Fortunately, we are not held to all the declarations we make.
