Welcome to the website of writer and editor Julie Wakeman-Linn. Come in and take a look. Links are to your right, news below. Thanks for coming!
Spring is coming so early to Maryland. My daffodils and tulips bulbs are poking through the leaves.
I'll be teaching at the Writer's Center again this spring. Fiction II starts March 28th and continues for four weeks. In this workshop, your story will be discussed and you will revise and workshop the revisions. Last summer Fiction II was an amazing experience.
JHU's Osher lifelong learning program has also invited me to teach. "The Wizardry of Fiction: the author behind the curtain" will examine the techniques authors use to create fiction. It should be fun--Osher students are terrific.
I am in the middle of a huge revision of my novel and working with a fantastic mentor. I hope your writing season will be productive and lovely, too.
Check out A Chapter Away in France, one of the best writer's events I've ever attended. It's where I met the mentor.
I had my first flash fiction accepted at Flash Fiction MagazineLook for "A Quarter for the Taj Mahal" on September 13th.

Mkuki Na Nyota has been wonderful to work with on my novel and on the Bethsaida Orphan girls' fund raiser anthology, Their Voices; Their Stories. To have an African publishing house with a Zimbabwean editor bring out my African novel feels just right.
