"Thanks so much for the encouragement, Jill! It could not have come at a better time. I have been a little lost in my mountains of research, unsure of how to turn it into anything other than a dissertation. But just a word of support was enough to…"
"Thanks for the warn welcome! And thank you for doing all of this good work in the world! I currently live and work at Yale, and given all of our bad press surrounding this topic in the last year (and again this week!), I am so grateful for what you…"

Lots of jazz, spirituals, poetry, and community, very little dogma.

Services I offer to other writers:
Happy to exchange writing and preliminary edits with other beginning writers. Although I am just finding my own voice, I am a footnote queen and a solid editor.

No formal title. Just a bunch of grad students who are sick of hearing their own academic voices who meet in the basement of SY to share creative writing.
