Bio for 2024

Maggie Heltzel would not call herself a writer. The practice of writing has always just… been? It has been an act of self-exploration, of processing global happenings, of playing with new words, and of screaming quietly. She is a journalist turned third-grade teacher, a lover of all things art and outdoors, and an aspiring extrovert (because being introverted has stifled opportunities to experience the world).

Reason for signing up:

LexPoMo is, and always will be, the highlight of her year. Maggie loves the opportunity to hear from talented writers and to engage with them in small, but mighty, ways.
