    My name is Darlene Small. Interested in writing essays. I hope to learn how to become an essayist from the Capitol Hill Writers Group; would even like to publish something somewhere–doesn’t necessarily have to be a book–just a well written essay–my one pride and joy in the literary world. I’ve read a few essays by James Baldwin, and Virginia Wolf’s book–I think it is titled ‘A Room of My Own’. Since I am most interested in this genre at the moment I figured I’d begin there and then maybe branch out to other genres. I took a children’s fiction writing course a while back but wasn’t very successful. Am still very much interested in essay writing touching on politics and social issues. As a journalism student at the University of the District of Columbia, I discovered I like nonfiction writing the best. But never really pursued writing. Since graduating from college many, many years ago I’ve done a news story or two for a couple of community newspapers. But that was a long time ago as well during free time from my federal job as a Budget Technician.
