      Thanks Erika – I never realized that some of the steps I’ve been taking the past year or two have been working toward my “Literary Citizenship”! Doesn’t that just make it all sound so official? Cathy Day’s syllabus looks to be a great guide with incredible resources. I’m just one week into Writing BootCamp with Lisa Romeo (loved her freelance post) and will have to wait a bit to delve more fully into Cathy’s syllabus but that won’t stop the ideas from percolating now that I’ve read it through! I’ve been struggling with my writing LinkedIn page as well so Lisa Baker’s post gives me some food for thought. Thanks for a great kick start to Friday morning!

        Hi, Amy: I think you are a Literary Citizen par excellence! I agree with you about the resources on Cathy’s syllabus–I’m tempted to get copies of all the books she has listed/assigned myself. And I’m thrilled that you’re immersing yourself in Lisa’s course. Keep me posted!
