My name is Tiffany Tackett and I have a BA in English: Creative Writing with a minor in Film. I volunteer as a Municipal Liaison for the Office of Letters and Light for their writing programs, Script Frenzy and National Novel Writing Month, where I organize local events, attend write-ins, answer participant questions about the program, instruct participants in writing technique and writing programs, all while writing either a 100 page script or a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. I received the student scholarship from the Southwest Writers Association for being a leader in the local writing community and a proponent of excellence in the craft, earning me a membership in their organization.
I have extensive training in research, literary analysis and criticism, copyediting, and creative writing technique, gained through the course of my university studies, from being vice president of a literary club, helping sift the slush pile of the Blue Mesa Review, and from being the Senior Editor of my high school's literary magazine.
I am passionate about writing and am constantly trying to improve my skills, through attending workshops, conferences, and reading on my own in writing technique and modern literature. Currently I am working on a novel length piece of high fantasy with a science fiction twist, as well as a plethora of short stories, a few of which are currently under consideration.
