SandraK

My writing journey began in 2012 when I opened my first blog. From there, I have written an article for a southeast church conference magazine and I have been a guest blogger on a homeschool blog. My most recent experiences include having a story published in the Chicken Soup for the Soul book - Angels All Around - and completing the writing of my first book.

I am a single mom of two teenagers so life is busy with working full-time, keeping up with the kids and trying to build a writing career. The biggest thing I'm looking for is connection with other writers. As of now, I am pretty much alone on this writing journey; it would be encouraging to have other writers to check in with and be accountable to. 
 

I enjoy writing about people who have met with challenges and overcame them. I have also dabbled a little bit with poetry, short essays about reflections on life and adventures with nature.

I have wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I obtained my Bachelors in Creative Writing in 2020, and I currently work for a Technical TextBook Publishing Company. In order to try and venture back onto my path as a writer, I created a blog where I have written various personal essays (in Spanish). My dream is to eventually be able to write a Memoir, and a series of non-fiction books to follow it.

I'm currently in a PhD program in ethnomusicology at Columbia University. I've co-authored one nonfiction book with the Stooges Brass Band about New Orleans's brass band scene. I've also published a few academic articles. I'm currently working on my dissertation about childhood in contemporary Black American popular music and am looking for a diverse group of writers who are interested in experimenting with genres.

I've been keeping journals since I was 11 years old...now 42.  My writing has been a savior and a guide and I'm rebirthing post divorce and want to reignite my creative side.  I revel in my own writing and the wisdom and guidance I meditatively wrote.  Looking to connect with like minded travelers - no destination in mind, just braving a new space and fellow poets and creatives ❤️

Hello!

I'm a nonfiction writer published in The NY Times, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, among others. I have a hard time focusing and have many pieces started but not finished. I've also been working on a memoir for many years that I'd like to finish. The themes I tend to write on are parenting, loss, faith, and technology. 

I'd love to find a group to keep me accountable to just showing up to write often.

I miss the days when I was in an MFA program, where everyone was absorbed in the writing culture and was also supportive of others' successes. Recreating that atmosphere would be so good for me and my mental health to spend time getting back into the craft I love and not working so much. I am looking for a group of supportive writers, preferrably in NYC (sorry!), who are also LGBTQIA+ friendly, and also take writing seriously. I love people who are out of the box, creative, empathetic, relatable, and most of all chill!

Sara Watkins

Author Bio: Sara Watkins is a full-time developmental editor, part-time author, and freelance collector of tiny, fat dragons— no one pays her to collect them, she just enjoys it. She has been published in Pennsylvania's Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Fiction, Pennsylvania's Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Nonfiction, and Blink Ink. Sara Watkins can be reached via www.sarawatkins.net or @saranadebooks.

Person Bio: I'm a 25-year-old disabled woman. Reading and writing helps me to remember that I'm much more than my illnesses; I'm a writer, I'm an editor, I'm a student, and a wife, and a person. Through my work, I hope to bring light to disability and share that some experiences are universal; despite our differences, we are not alone. My literary circle has severely dwindled since the start of the pandemic due due to being immunocompromised, so I'm looking for a group to share the literary experience with! Accountability partners are always appreciated.
