Everything about Prose & Pens has been leading to this very moment…you reading my bio. And I couldn’t be more grateful that you’re here. Thank you!

But, you’re probably wondering what makes me qualified to help you with your writing needs. That’s fair.

I have over 11 years experience teaching writing at the university level.

My undergraduate degree is in English.  I have a graduate degree in English/Secondary Education.  And I'll soon have earned myself a Ph.D in Reading & Literacy.  

I've worked with a few nationally renowned writing services including The National Writing Project where I served as Teacher Leader, and Educational Testing Service (ETS) where I am an Advanced Placement (AP) Composition Exam Scorer.  Because of those opportunities, coupled with past experience, I've also gained expertise in business, news, and creative writing.  

Other than that, I simply love to write and I’ll brag on myself and say that I’m pretty great at it. The fact that I won that one writing contest in 6th grade HAS to be proof of that.

Writing is a passion.  But, I also have a few hobbies; some fleeting and others I'm a bit more committed.  I happen to have a on-going relationship with the following:

binge watching Lifetime movies

eating ice cream (yep, this is a bonafide hobby)

perpetually preparing to run a half marathon


Something else about me?  I value my family and friendships and feel so extremely blessed, and sometimes undeserving, to have people who love and accept my supremely introverted, Gemini ways.

I also feel blessed to have the opportunity to help others meet their personal and professional goals by providing quality writing services.  So for those of you who don't love writing; feel your writing skills can be made better and stronger; or simply don't have the time to commit to your writing tasks, I've got your back.  

Let's work together to create a writing product that helps you say exactly what you want to say, exactly how you want to say it.  Have questions for me? No problem. Just drop them here and I'll have an answer for you in 24 hours or less (it's usually much, much less).  

I'm looking forward to chatting with you!  Until then.

xoxo Dwaynia
