My name is Elvia, I'm 23 and have been writing (mainly as a hobbie) for about 10 years.  Lately I've been wanting to take it more seriously and I think good feedback can help me improve.  I currently live in the Bay area in California and am going to college at nights and working at a middle school during the day.  I am convinced that words have saved my life repeatedly whether it's been through my own writing, other people's work, or lyrics.
