Who am I to write this post, anyway? Ironically, that's the thought running through my head right now. It's not like I have any secret formula for defeating impostor syndrome.

I benefited so much from the opportunity to connect with fellow writers, the experience of receiving and giving CP edits, and the privilege of reading my cohort's beautiful stories.
