An archive of Julie’s posts can be found HERE.
Julie Duffy is the founder and director of the creativity challenge StoryADay.org where she has blogged about the creative life and short stories since 2010. StoryADay is the host of annual short story writing challenges in May and September, year-round writing prompts, articles and community resources for creative inspiration. She regularly talks at writers’ groups and conferences about creativity and writing.
As well as writing short stories, Julie has written for Writer’s Digest, Writer’s Journal, and was the genre columnist for Flash Fiction Chronicles. She has created websites for small businesses, moved from her native Scotland to Pennsylvania (somewhat to her surprise), and was, once upon a time, the Director of Author Services at the first author-focused print-on-demand publishing company in the US. She and the company’s founders shared a belief that if you want to live a creative life, nothing should hold you back.
Julie is currently working on making the transition to ‘novelist’, even though she will always love short stories. She knits and juggles, though rarely at the same time. You can find out more at julieduffy.com
