Victoria is one of our long-time Drafting Workshop members. Last week, she and I sat down to chat about her summer plans, and we wanted to share our conversation with you.

Victoria is full of creative ideas and passionate about growing as a writer. One of my favorite parts of our conversation was when she pointed out that like golf, writing is a solo sport, but one in which athletes (or in our case, writers) benefit from being part of a team.

Victoria shares how, for her, participating in the Drafting Workshop feels like being on a team of writers, how the energy and ideas she gains from her peers challenges and inspires her.

Victoria and I are delighted to share our quick conversation with you, and hope you’ll be inspired to take on a passion project of your own this summer!



Summer is coming … will you take on a passion project with the Inklings community? We hope you will!
