Anne Wayman has been freelancing longer than she cares to admit. Writers know her best these days through her blog, About Freelance Writing.
Anne loves helping freelancers and knew a forum was another good way to do just that. Writers talking with writers, sharing what they know is an incredible source of practical knowledge.
Besides, Anne knows a supportive forum is the perfect antidote to the isolation a writer can so easily slip into. Plus it's just plain fun!
So why is the forum called About Writing Squared?
Back in 2011 or so, Anne and Lori Widmer - another well known, well respected writer and blogger - joined hands to form this forum. Wayman and Widmer sounded like W Squared to Anne and Lori Loved the idea.
Anne goes a bit deeper saying, "My daughter, Linda Wayman Wilder gets a hat tip - she tells me when she was in college at Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo (aka SLO), her sorority sisters dubbed her W squared."
Lori, who decided she wanted to write poetry rather than do the background work for a forum, turned it all over to Anne. Lori still participates regularly. We count on her as well as other names you'll most likely recognize.
