First, I want to thank you. Thank you for being here, however you got here (I’m curious though: How did that happen?). However you found me, thanks again for stopping by.
My name Ty Washington. I’m a University of Michigan alum (Go Blue!) and am currently based in Bradenton, Fl, where I write and teach.
More than anything, I love to write and to travel. Ultimately, I hope to do both for a living.
This goal of mine is starting to seem like a real-life possibility. In March 2019, I took my Fantasy manuscript to a pitch conference in New York City and got really exciting responses from topnotch editors and agents (oh, and also 3 manuscript requests!!!) I’m thrilled and want to share my publishing journey with you. It’s been a long time coming (seriously! I’ve been writing this series since I was ten).
Speaking of journeys, I also love traveling and finding new places to write. I frequently take solo day-trips and weekend trips to work on my writing (How on earth do I afford that on a teacher’s salary, you ask? By teaching English online through VIPKID in my spare time.)
I love getting energy from new places to feed into my stories. Stay tuned for recommendations of some of my favorite coffeehouses & writing retreat locations around the United States.
For more about what and where I’m writing, follow my Instagram (@tywritenow). Drop a comment on a recent post to say hi! I look forward to meeting you.
