Hey, y'all. Can't Post

Hi, all.

I'm definitely new to the Speakeasy and am still finding my way. I'm a early thirties-ish new mom who's been telling stories and lies since I could talk. I earned a BA in English and Speech & Communications Studies, a MA in English, and I'm about to embark on the MFA in Writing adventure. I've been accepted to several schools and am trying to decide, which is a wonderful and frustrating thing.

I've been a lifeguard, backpacking guide and newspaper reporter. Currently I teach English as an adjunct instructor at a small, liberal arts college in N.C. My creative work has appeared in South Loop Review, the Santa Fe Writer's Project, Wilderness House Literary Review, and regional magazines and newspapers. I've written an historical novel and was able to acquire an agent, though he hasn't found a publisher (and it's been a few years). I've thoroughly enjoyed writing residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and the Montana Artists Refuge, and I'd love to do more... though with a toddler, my writer's life has certainly changed.

I'm hopeful about being a writer, and I've got a lot to learn.

My best to all of you,

KSC
