I am an active member in a number of writing and artistic organizations both nationally and locally. This helps me stay sharp, interact with other writers, and network. Beyond the list below, I am also part of the larger writing community in Chicago. These include critique groups, writer and artist fellowships, and continuing education opportunities. I am also a constant reader in my field.
I am interesting in joining an active board as a member. I am especially interested in ones serving global relief, literacy, inmate/ex-offenders, art, or sex trafficking. Please contact me for these or other opportunities.
