Success Stories: Sally Matheny’s Writing Journey from Write2Ignite Conference

A freelance writer and blogger, Sally Matheny has published in numerous online and print publications including Appleseeds, Clubhouse Jr., Homeschooling Today, Practical Homeschooling, and The Old Schoolhouse. Sally attributes much of her writing success to her first experience attending a Write2Ignite Conference:

“I connected with an editor from Clubhouse Jr. In a fifteen-minute session, I showed her the first picture book manuscript I had written. She offered kind and helpful advice. That particular manuscript still sits in my filing cabinet. However, I later wrote two articles published by Clubhouse Jr. It took roughly a year of edits for each of them before reaching publication. It was a long learning process which grew me as a writer.”

To read Sally’s full account of the series of events following her introduction to W2I, look for her article on our blog, scheduled for April 19, 2018!
