Lee Stevens

I spent my career writing grant proposals and fundraising materials. Now I am working on my memoir, helping others writer their memoirs, writing personal profiles for newsletters, and blog pieces for BoomSpeak. I also have one short story about to be published in Straylight Literary Magazine. I am looking for a writing group to share ideas and writing, to motivate me to keep at it, and to inspire me.
