Most of my writing has revolved around essays, periodical writings, scholarships, and grant writings. I enjoy those type of writings. However, I would really love to learn how to write to an audience on a more personal level with memoirs, literary fictions, historical fictions, and address youn adult issues through storytelling.
I am an Indie Publisher of 3 middle-grade fantasy novels (The Maryalise Trilogy) and a picture book (Who Was There: A Nativity Story for Children). I also write short stories and essays. I blog at rose-the-storylady.com. I am a storyteller and write some of the stories I tell. I am looking to be challenged in a writing group. I am willing to try new ideas for writing.
I'm a bit of a hodgepodge. I'm interested in a variety of subjects and as a result, I write in a variety of genres. I've also had a mixed experience when it comes to publishing. I have traditionally published two non-fiction books (addressing regional maritime history), but I have also had some success self-publishing as well.
Honestly, I'm not sure of my expectations for any potential writing groups that I might join. I would love to find a supportive environment where I could recieve (and give) feedback and writing advice. But, I've had bad luck in the past tyring to find a writing community. fingers crossed that I have a better experience this time! :)
I study and write about gender, sexuality and queer studies through a transfeminist, intersectional lens. I write poetry, non-fiction, creative non-fiction and academic research papers, as well as popular media articles on current events and topics.
I would love to connect with others with similar interests!
