Now I am going watch the videos here so I can put faces and voices to the essayists! 🙂
I wrote a review of your book How Dare We! Write and published it on my blog, Amazon, and Goodreads. It was highly educational for me as a white woman who did not go to school for an MFA or another related degree. However, I did accomplish an MSW degree. Your book has given me pause as I think about my own experiences finding my writing voice later in life. Best of everything for 2018 for each talented essayist who contributed!
