I might as well have emerged from the womb with a pen in one hand, a pad in the other.  From the time I discovered the potential of my “ABCs,” I knew I was a natural-born writer. In school, I wrote everything from short stories to mock newspapers. In college, I read every classic and cranked out literary criticism at the speed of a big-city bike messenger.


As a writing professional, I sought to create a safe haven for writers of all backgrounds -- a place to share our drafts, provide constructive criticism, and collaborate collectively. The truth is, simple, correctable mistakes will devalue and diminish your work in the eyes of your readers.  Don't let that happen!
