A Brit who grew up in Africa before moving back home and then, eventually, to the States, I am ancient (see cover photo) and have given up all hope of ever being published. To start with, I am putting a few of my existing short stories in the portfolio but the idea is that I get motivated to reboot my writing drive in this community.
It seems to be working. Already I have been up all night, composing pieces in my head until I am driven to get out of bed, switch on the computer and write some of the sentences I don't want to lose.
Oh, and I'm a judge in the 24 Syllable Contest. Try it - you'll like it!
