Lizzy Sosa Paz, MFA Blog Contributor
Lizzy Sosa Paz is the author of a dozen nonfiction books for children. She's a first-year student in the MFA program at Florida State University, where she also teaches freshman composition. Lizzy holds a Bacherlor's degree in Comparative Literature. After earning the AB in the early 1990s, Lizzy decided to take time off to slack and explore the world, Lizzy-style. She's lived in several countries and a handful of U.S. states.
An older-than-typical MFA student, Lizzy thinks she knows a thing or two about finding one's calling. She's followed her instincts relentlessly and they've led her to just this juncture, after all. She'll admit that her instincts might've, in fact, steered her away from a cushier, safer life featuring more reliable cars and a spiffier wardrobe. She'll have to live with that.
While here at this blog, Lizzy would like to offer up tidbits of info and encouragement as required or requested. Also, she plain likes to gab online. Therefore, she hopes to hear from you.
