My first workshop at CTRWA was a hit!

On a rainy Saturday in January, I delivered my first craft workshop called Writing an Authentic Teen Voice and I’m happy to say it was a hit! 

I was beyond nervous — I have only two publishing credits to my name! I’m not qualified for this! But I am so glad I said yes because I learned something — just like in writing, only I can tell my story. So what I know about voice may actually be something you haven’t heard before. 

Sometimes, it’s fun to come out of your comfort zone!
