I love capturing life through words. I've got this energy inside of me -- a kind of restlessness -- and when I put pen to paper, my soul is at rest. Fulfilled. 
 

I'm not very good at creativity. I have writing friends who are brilliant at imaginative literature, creating these elaborate worlds that defy and amaze. This is not I! I've never been able to create something magically out of thin air. But I have gotten pretty good at capturing real life -- and this is the genre I love.
 

For me, it's all about style. I don't have a strong vocabulary, so I must rely on style. Always trying to perfect & improve it...this is what I'm hoping to gain from a writing group.

Melanie Storrusten

I'm a trauma therapist on sabbatical, writing on themes of trauma, family relationships and patterns, fertility/pregnancy/adoption/abortion, abuse and personhood, illness, death, spirituality, ancestral connections, and the ways we lose, hide, and find ourselves. So far I'm working primarily in the memoir/creative nonfiction genres, but open to finding out whatever the writing wants to become.

I'm also a songwriter and prior to moving away from Atlanta, was in an Americana band and we recorded two albums. I've recently moved to rural Southwest Georgia, and am shifting to solo writing and performing in my music as well.

I have no formal writing training aside from a few recent 6-week courses through Emory University's creative writing certificate program. I'm new, and my writings are in the earliest stages. I'm interested in a group for accountability, encouragement, feedback and critique. My goals with writing are primarily for my own therapeutic benefit, and secondarily to publish.

Hello! 

I'm a senior in highschool, and I really love journaling every time I feel a strong emotion, and it takes form in poetry. I began sharing my writing with my english teacher, and she recommended that I share some of my work with a writing group! 

This is becoming a hobby of mine, and I would love and appreciate any feedback from my work!! I would love to know any initial thoughts, overall feel for the piece, things you like or notice, and things I could do better!

Poetry teaches me to pay attention: to nature, to human life, and to my own feelings. Poetry helps me find the extraordinary in the mundane. I mostly write haiku, tanka, and related short form poems, and have published about 100 works in literary journals. These days I am hoping to return to writing more free verse. I'm looking to connect with other poets who also center their work on nature and paying attention to ordinary things, as in the work of Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry, and David Whyte.

I'm a young writer interested in nature, mental health, spirituality, love, feminity, and social connection. I wrote my first manuscript as part of my senior keystone project in college, and I'm currently submitting that collection for publication. As I graduate college, I am hoping to continue learning from others and having an accountability group for both encouragement and critique. I have experience in workshop environments, am published in literary journals, and hope to have my collection published soon.

I am a retired English teacher who believes in the power of healing through writing. Workshop experience tells me that when I write about situations related to my childhood trauma, it sometimes helps to lift the veil, and I would like to continue doing so.
