Hey all. My name is Jann and I'm new here. This is the first writing forum I have ever joined even though I have been writing since I was in highschool. I am 35 years of age and I am a college student. Before the summer started I was majoring in Game Art Design and seeking a bachelors degree. However now I am researching schools to seek a bachelors in creative writing. I am currently published but only in no more than four or five poetry anthologies. I wish to refine my skills through college so that I may have a better chance of seeing my name in print on shelves next to my favorite authors. Unfortunately I need cataracts removed from both of my eyes so I can not start college immediately, but that gives me time to find a good school which is in high standing among the writing community, but it has to be online for I am unwilling and unable to travel at this time due to very low funds. If anyone knows of a few good creative writing schools, please feel free to PM me anytime with contact info and web addresses. With that said, I would just like to say that I look forward to meeting as many of you here as possible and hope to establish more than a few long lasting friendships. I am open to critique and to be critiqued and even for collaboration on certain projects or even a brain storming session. Also, keep an eye out for any blogs writen by me or the addition of a web link to something called "The Farley Foundation" which I and my fiancee are putting together to help patients and the families of patients diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). Look forward to meeting you all. Take care.
