Post #1 of 10
Greetings from Maine!
New to P and W
I am finishing a novel I started many years ago. I stopped writing to raise three teenagers as a single mom, and now, for the first time in my life, I have the chance, i.e., no job or parenting pressures, to work on the book.
I have an MFA in Creative Writing from the Stonecoast Writing Program at the University of Southern Maine, and post-graduation, still need work on craft.
I have a non-fiction book to my credit, about microbrewed beer, and the novel's setting is in a brewpub, so that part is fun.
What I am seeking from P & W is support and information, if you are willing to share it, about how to organize myself to do fiction writing part of the time, and do the administrative stuff like getting pieces submitted, contests entered, queries tracked, and most importantly, where to find grants to apply for.
Great to be here!
