Probably More Than You Want To Know by Sarah Glenn Fortson
For me, writing is a second career. I was an educator for a long time and probably still am in a sense. I love my new life as a writer. I've enjoyed summers at Iowa's Writing Festival and one summer at Northwestern University's Talent Development Center where I taught creative writing to gifted elementary and middle schoolers. In July I'm in the north Georgia mountains for the Week Of Writing retreat. In winter I've painted in Fairhope, Alabama at the infamous art studio, which was once a gas station. Illustration is probably not in my future, but sometimes stories form in my head while I paint. I'm a member of SCBWI and Off Campus Writers in Winnetka, Illinois. I enjoy taking writing classes online and on site. I've attended classes at Highlights Foundation, the Wild, Wild Midwest conference, the Picture Book Summit and The Writing Barn in Austin, Texas where I met my new agent, Danielle Smith! I'm intrigued with writing picture books, both fiction and nonfiction, but have middle grade and young adult projects as well. So that is all. If you made it through to the end, "Hi, Sis."... because you're probably the only one who did.
