It finally occurred to me that as I work on my various writing projects, I might really enjoy helping middle grade and high school student to improve their writing skills. So that’s what I will be doing!
Writing can be a tricky business, for sure. Help is coming. So, if you know of any students (I can coach via phone also) who could use some writing support, here is my professional link!
I had an eye-opening conversation today on Soul Lab Radio with writer Shelley Seale who just released her first book, The Weight of Silence: Invisible Children of India. In it, she chronicles her experiences visiting and getting to know a handful of the 25 million homeless children who live in slums, orphanages and on the streets. Many of the stories mirror those of the characters featured in the Academy Award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire.
Shelley is a freelance writer based out of Austin, Texas, but she has traveled around the world capturing stories of real people. Shelley has written for the Seattle Times, Washington Magazine, the Austin Business Journal, Intrepid Travel and Andrew Harper Traveler Magazine among others, and is the Sustainable Travel Columnist at The Examiner.
