Wow, what an eclectic group. I’m bummed I missed this cruise! It’s on my radar now, so maybe I’ll meet a few of you on the high seas next year.
I’m a published non-fiction author, published writer in national and local media, contributor to a hodgepodge of websites and blogs, published poet and producer.
I’ve been a part of Steven’s tribe for years and am a grad of a few of his programs. This one particularly knocks me right in the feels since using my creative super powers to make a positive impact in the world is a fundamental mission.
I’m looking to be part of a creative community centered around the value of social justice since my deepest drive is to use storytelling to reveal truths that make the world a more just and compassionate place. Great fiction does this by widening prespectives, provoking transformational insights and revealing truths in a way “facts” are often not capable of doing alone.
My hope is that this group can help me be accountable to my writing goal of getting a short story published within the next few months. Of course that means writing eveeryday, which is a struggle for me, so feel free to kick my arse and hold me to the fire!
Glad to be among new friends in this course 🙂
