About being a part of Anita’s Attic Creative Writing program
It took me ten years to complete my first (as yet unpublished) fiction novel. Ten years of trying to eke out a writing discipline between life events, learning the craft by trial and error and ultimately not having the confidence that I was good enough.
I wanted to do it differently for my second book. So I joined Anita’s program and it has been a dramatically different experience. I got into a cadence of writing, and received real-time tips, feedback and encouragement. It was wonderful to meet fellow writers and others in the publishing industry week after week. I didn’t want it to end. I wish I had this opportunity ten years ago. If you get the chance, grab it.
