My Ivy Education is offering live online creative writing classes this summer at www.myivyeducation.org, and has opened up new sessions starting July 21 after the CTY cancellations and to help out any students looking for an exciting and educational experience this summer!

Her students have been recognized by the National YoungArts Foundation, the Poetry Society of America, the Poetry Society of the UK, the Alliance for Young Writers and Artists, and more. She has also helped many students become National YoungArts finalists and get accepted to the prestigious Iowa Young Writers’ Studio, Kenyon Review Young Writers Workshop, and Adroit Journal Summer Mentorship Program.
