The Writers' Rooms

I'm one of the Directors of The Writers' Rooms, a literary organization focused on providing community-sourced knowledge and a safe environment to writers no matter what their skill, income, gender, race, etc. We have 6 genre-based Rooms that last two-hours and provide literary lessons, discussion, as well as prompts and writing time. The Writers' Rooms is steadily growing and being invited to special events. We've appeared at Pride and ICON, and several of our members will be attending I.O.W.A. I also help lead The Violet Realm, our sci-fi/fantasy Room. My favorite part about the organization is helping people find the passion to write again.

RARE Raptor Advocacy Rehabilitation & Education

I'm one of the volunteer members at RARE, a raptor advocacy and rehabilitation center in Iowa City, Iowa. Though health problems have limited my activities, I help tend to wounded birds (both songbirds and raptors), and provide information at educational sessions that we host around the state. This is an incredible organization with hardworking volunteers. If you're interested in learning more about RARE, or donating, please visit us at: http://theraregroup.org/
