    You have all helped me find a voice again after many years I can now say, "I am a writer! This experience has invigorated my teaching and my life! We became a genuine writing community. ...to my second family at SCKWP 2006 - Thank you all for your inspiration and love. Thanks to the South Central Kansas Writing Project I have dedicated more time to writing. I now find myself resuming the journey.
