Karen Thomas

"I am an avid and prolific reader of both fiction and non-fiction, which I consider to be among the best sources for learning.

My self-taught journey is fueled by an insatiable appetite for literature, encompassing both novels and educational texts. In addition to reading, I actively engage in listening to lectures on the craft of writing, recognizing that there are always new things to learn in the world of creative writing.

I thoroughly enjoy my continued education in the field. And, furthermore, my dedication to growth extends to my active participation in two distinct writers' critique groups, where I have been an attendee, learner, and contributor for over seven years. These experiences have enriched my understanding of the craft while allowing me to contribute to the growth of fellow writers."
