Other Things I Do

Paper/Rock Writing Consultation (paperrockwriting.com) is a business I started in January of 2018.  My mission is to:

–Empower students with diverse abilities and backgrounds to write “winning-chance essays” for entrance into college or graduate school, for scholarships, or for college-level or graduate-level classes.

–Help organizations and communities succeed through writing.

Services are offered online and, if you happen to be located in the Snohomish County, WA area, I can meet in person as well–and I can also conduct writing workshops for groups.  More details can be found on my site.

I also enjoy writing short stories in the horror/fiction genre.  Here are my latest:

“Molecular Bonds,” Theme of Absence: An Online Magazine of Fantasy, Horror, and Science Fiction, edited by Jason Bougger, March 9, 2018.

“Teacher Training Video,” Scars Publications, edited by Janet Kuypers, March 2, 2018. (When you click on the link, you have to find my name (Cecilia Kennedy) from the list of authors and then click on the title that comes up.)

“Haunted Water Aerobics,” Gathering Storm Literary Magazine: Collected Tales of the Dark, the Light, and Everything in Between, edited by Michael McHenry, vol. 1, no. 3, June 2017, pp. 26-31.

“Hello,” Theme of Absence: An Online Magazine of  Fantasy, Horror, and Science Fiction, edited by Jason Bougger, April 7, 2017.

Finally, serving as a volunteer blogger for the Safe Crossings Foundation in Seattle has been a rewarding experience as well.  This organization serves grieving children who have lost parents or other family members.  The children are connected with the resources they need in order to heal.  Here are a few posts I’ve done so far:

“Themes and Patterns:  Cultural Sensitivity in Grief Support” 

“Healing in Cyberspace:  The Role of Online Bereavement Platforms in Helping Grieving Children Heal”
