Desire to Join Existing Writing Group
Oct 13, 2021
I am a retired English professor seeking a group of experienced writers working on their craft who will welcome me into the discussion. Over the last 27 years, I have put long term writing projects on the back burner while teaching full time and managing a creative writing-editing group with students of Belmont Abbey College in NC. I am a winner of the American Academy of Poets prize and several awards from the Baylor University Beall Poetry Conference, and my poems have been published in the Beall Conference poetry journal and in Agora, Belmont Abbey College's literary-art journal. Currently I am working on a memoir. If invited, I am happy to be a listener and comment if asked, not overwhelm an already existing group with many new things for you to read. Right now I feel I am writing in my own bubble, a kind of vacuum. As a literature, writing, and creative writing teacher--and a writer, I may have much to offer if given a chance. Thank you.
