About being a part of Anita’s Attic Creative Writing program
Stepping into the Attic began my journey as a literary fiction writer. Anita’s mentorship and guidance, and the camaraderie of my fellow writers, invested that beginning with a great feeling of possibility. As a new fiction writer, it was invaluable for me not only to receive Anita’s incisive critiques with each chapter of my book, but to write propelled by her enthusiasm for our projects and her belief in our talents. More than anything, what I take away from the Attic is the sheer joy of creative writing.
