The World of Imagination ~~~ Creative Writing

United States - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 2

From the time I was a child, storytelling has been a fascination, and the discovery of writing has led me into a whole new world of creation and imagination, including a passion for writing poetry, short-stories, novels, and the occasional short screenplay. I self-publish poetry and short-stories through an online community. I have written a short-story which is now in the process of being published by a literary magazine, as well as various poems in upcoming anthologies. Now just recently, my dedication and love for my writing has earned me a professor-recommended job as a Peer English Tutor at the community college where I am currently working towards my English degree. I am willing and eager to put my love and my talent for creative writing and storytelling to work!
