Utica Writers Club
Check out the website for the Utica Writers Club. I was the Secretary until recently of this long standing Utica writing Institution.
I have enjoyed being a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. The local chapter has a yearly workshop that I attended and hope to continue to learn from each year.
Mohawk Valley Writing Project
I am delighted to have been a part of this dynamic team of teacher/writers from the Utica area and beyond. Hopefully the funding of the National Writing Project (NWP) and its affiliate program the Mohawk Valley Writing Project (MVWP) through Utica college will be restored and we can continue to offer programs to learners at every level.
NaNoWRiMo is a National challenge to write a novel in a month. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write about 1,667 words per day to reach the final goal of 50,000 words by the end of November. Go to NaNoWriMo.org to find out how you can join this crazy challenge yourself!
Standard Written English
Standard Written English is commonly known as SWE. Those are my initials, Sharon Wilde Ellison. I am a writer living the writing life who also has a full-time job, as many writers do. I am also an ESL teacher (English as a Second Language). I love life, love writing, love my students and my family.
