Why an Ampersand?
In life, there is always an 'and.' Another shoe to drop, another place to visit, person to meet, or opportunity for adventure.
This was the philosophy of Sonja Griffing's first writing critique group, The Ampersands. The idea being that we are never truly done. Not with writing, not with growth, & not with our own stories.
Sonja uses the idea of the ampersand as inspiration to create well-rounded characters, more compelling plotlines, and to establish deeper connections between her stories and her readers.
