From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

UNH Magazine: Revisiting "Peyton Place"

This is an article I wrote that was just published at www.unhmagazine.unh.edu. It has of course been edited after it left my desk, so a few of the sentences are not my own, but it is something I worked very hard for several months of last year. It will be of particular interest to writers and anyone with a link to New Hampshire.
