A Children’s Book Series

Wild Heart Journal published a series of articles intended to encourage creativity in children, under the umbrella, I’m a Real Artist, which also included “I’m a Real Dancer,” “I’m a Real Singer,” “I’m a Real Writer,” and “I’m a Real Cook.”

The idea was to rail against the notion I had struggled with my whole life, waiting for the world to acknowledge and legitimize my identity as a writer, rather than simply writing to write, or writing because, as the series conveyed, each and every one of us has a unique voice of authenticity and originality worthy of expression.
