Hello, all

My name is April, and I am starting to write again. This is my first online writing community, and I feel honored to be a part of it.

Due to life circumstances, I am currently living as a nomad. Most of my travel experiences up to this point have been to various third world countries, so I find it strange to get on a plane and still know the primary language when we land. The languages in which I have been nearly-conversational in my lifetime are American Sign Language and Tok Pisin of Papua New Guinea, although I have never been there.

I am currently reading The Keeper of Lost Things. Before that, I was reading The Nightingale and Daring Greatly. My favorite authors include, but are not limited to, Agatha Christie, Emily Dickinson, and Malcolm Gladwell.

I have worked rather extensively as a writing tutor, and specialize in EFL.

I have had a short story and a poem published by the creative literary journal of my alma mater. I have also co-authored an academic article that was presented at and published by an international higher education conference in Greece.

I am not as old as you think I am.
