Marta C. Youngblood (aka Marta G)

Growth is an essential part of life and in that spirit I want to thank those of you who have followed the evolution of Monday’s With Marta G.  Welcome to my next experiment, The Girl WRITE Here.  In this space I will explore more project based writing and gear up to publish some of the work I’ve been tinkering with for awhile.  If you’d like to view my older works, no worries, they are still here in the archives.  Hope you’ll enjoy where I’m heading next.
