Booked and busy?
I prefer Productive and Prosperous!

One thing I know about myself – there’s fruit in my labor when I’m productive; I get burned out when I’m busy.
Check out the different branches of my writer’s self below and my interview with Shoutout Atlanta to learn more about what I do!

OUTREACH

I Need You Write Away

I love to write letters and I love to encourage others.

Blend them and you have my outreach avenue – I Need You Write Away (trademark pending).  For a set timeframe (usually about 4 hours), I write letters to specific demographic groups. Strangers are invited to confidentially share their person’s address to me so they can receive a letter and they can join in the writing campaign.

November 2017 & June 2018 – Strangers and friends met for one goal – to give the gift of words. I opened the offer to join me in writing letters of encouragement to deployed military service personnel and incarcerated men and women at my favorite Panera Bread location in Gardendale, Alabama. My heart was so full of goodness to kindness poured on paper.

April 2020 – The height of the pandemic created a spotlight on essential workers, so I hosted an virtual writing session and invited attendants to write with me. From funeral services professionals to firefighters, eighteen letters of encouragement were mailed to individuals who worked hard to keep our communities going!

I look forward to seeing you at the next one. Be sure to subscribe to my e-list and follow me on social media to receive updates!



I am so humbled and grateful that God uses clay like me.
