On the fourth Tuesday of every month, we gather for the ProWritingAid Write-In. You're invited to join us as we work through short writing prompts and share together for feedback, focussing on a different area of the writing process each month. Whether you work on pieces of your ongoing writing project, or come up with new concepts and ideas for every prompt, every writer is welcome.
Hayley is thrilled to be ProWritingAid's Content Lead and Head of Learning, as it gives her an excuse to think deeply about words every single day. Prior to joining ProWritingAid, Hayley spent a number of years as an elementary school teacher, which was a crash course in learning how to entertain an indifferent audience. These days, she puts her storytelling skills to use writing blog articles and working on her first novel.
