Sharon J. Wishnow
I've been involved in the publications industry for more than two decades. My expertise includes writing, editing, and managing content for magazines, feature-length articles, marketing materials, press releases, newsletters, blogs, and website.
I decided to dust off my MFA from George Mason University and I'm writing fiction. My latest manuscript is an upmarket women’s fiction story, WHERE THE PELICANS ROOST. The story is set in Grand Isle, Louisiana during the 2010 Gulf oil spill.
I'm represented by Ann Leslie Tuttle at Dystel, Goderich & Bourret, LLC.
Women's Fiction Writer's Association (WFWA)
I believe you get out of life what you put into it. The writing world is a hard one. The obsession to tell stories and have them read and loved can make the strongest writer ache. The best way to move forward is to connect to others and to find your own writing community.
I'm the new Executive Editor of the association's WriteOn! magazine, and the former Vice President of Communications. WFWA, a growing online nonprofit community of writers. I credit the members of WFWA for helping me reach my personal writing goals.
