For over a decade, the name ChickLitGurrl has been a part of my life.
Originally, the name came from this simple thought: I am a girl who loves literature by chicks.
For most of my life, before and after the creation of the name, this has been true.
It was only appropriate that now, as people see the name and think of Shonell Bacon, that I would finally come home to the name, create a site, and showcase the work I do as an author, editor, and educator.
Through ChickLitGurrl, you will be able to:
- buy books I write,
- purchase editorial services for your written content,
- learn about my projects/products I create via my HUGSlove line,
- take a webinar course (mostly on writing),
- and more!
I used to blog here in CLG, but have decided that CLG will represent the professional (commercial) portion of Shonell Bacon while my new site The Musings of WIP-It Chick will host the more personal side through my blogging on current goings-on, editing and writing tips, fabulous women and writers, and more! Definitely take time to check it out, and welcome to my neck of the cyber-woods.
A More Personal Look at Head Chica in Charge of ChickLitGurrl: Shonell Bacon
Author. Blogger. Coffee/Tea Addict. Crafter. Editor. Educator. Writing Coach.
A Jacqueline of all trades and a mistress of some, Shonell Bacon’s primary goals are to educate, entertain, and excite.
As an author, Shonell’s women’s fiction, mysteries, and rom-coms leave readers satiated and hungry for more. At the heart of everything she writes creatively, readers will find broken women made strong through their determination and actions.
Shonell’s love of the written word moved her to not only take on the task of editor in 1999, but it also pushed her to pursue her MFA in Creative Writing (fiction) in 2001. Since then, she has helped 100s of writers develop their writing craft through her editing services, articles, and online projects, like Writing Boot Camp. The result, which Shonell loves, is seeing her clients excited to write that phenomenal next book.
Shonell’s desire to help develop strong writers fuses with the work she has done as an educator of English (Developmental Writing, English Composition, Advanced Grammar), mass communication (Writing for the Media, Emerging Media Practices, etc.), and creative writing at the university level.
