My name is Sylvia Ney. I fell in love with reading and writing as a small child. I wrote for my high school newspaper for three years, becoming editor my senior year. I also wrote and edited the community newsletter my senior year. I had a poem published in a national anthology before I graduated in 1996.
I wrote for my college newspaper for four years becoming Editor my senior year.
When I graduated in 2000, I became a fifth grade teacher for two years and then taught high school English and journalism classes for five years. Most of my writing during this time consisted of curriculum, lesson plans, grant and scholarship programs.
In the last few years I realized I was spending all my time teaching and helping others to follow their dream of being published. I was no longer following my own wish to do so. With the encouragement of friends and family, I started writing again.
I love to read and write in a variety of genres. This blog will be a reflection of my dedication to those endeavors.
I recently submitted a nonfiction piece to a religious anthology. I am now working on a submission for a Chicken Soup for the Soul book.
