Hi, I'm Morgan Lindsay Nelson and I'm thrilled to be teaching this class here at Skillshare!

Here's a bit about myself so you know me better:

  • I am a writer and visual artist. 
  • Writing has been a constant love of mine throughout my life. 
  • I've written screenplays for the past ten years, lifestyle articles for digital startups and pen short stories.
  • I am a total nerd for all things creative.
  • I work with aspiring writers to guide them through the (sometimes-overwhelming) world of writing and energize their creativity so it all feels fresh and fun.
