I hope you will help me celebrate and support an organization I care about. San Diego Writers, Ink is EPIC! And by EPIC, I mean that it has been my source for:

  • Education - I have taken classes to learn more about writing poetry, flash fiction, prose poems, and stage plays. I have participated in workshops with editors, agents, bloggers, podcasters, playwrights, novelists, poets, screenwriters, spoken word performers, and more.
  • Publication - I have had my work published in the organization's annual anthology, A Year in Ink.
  • Inspiration - I have been inspired by the stories of countless writers--some well-known, some just starting out--all of them passionate about the power of words. I am lucky enough to bear witness to the act of creation every week at Thursday Writers. I am inspired by the successes of other writers, and even more by their courage in the face of rejection. Writers inspire me every day--on the page, in person, and even in my dreams.
  • Collaboration - If you've ever spent time trying to take that amazing story in your head and commit it to paper, then you know what a solitary act it is to be a writer. SDWI gives writers what they need as much as anything else--community. I have had the good fortune to collaborate with some amazing people--Judy Reeves, for example (lucky me!)--and there is nothing quite as magical as a room full of writers putting their heads together for a common purpose. It's as powerful as any drug--with far fewer side effects.

So join me, won't you, in supporting the creative arts. If you've ever read a book or a poem or a short story or an essay that moved you, that had you thanking the Muse that someone took the time to get those words on the page, then I encourage you to say thank you by supporting this outstanding organization of writers.
