Who is Mia?
Mia has used her many years of procrastination experience to create Deadlines for Writers. She is a writer and a writing coach, as well as a master of desk organisation and tile grout scrubbing. After yet another year of unfinished manuscripts, random scribbles and self-loathing she decided to set a challenge for herself by writing 12 Short Stories in 12 Months. It turns out she was not the only one who needed to outsource her discipline. That was seven years ago. Along with the kindest and most talent group of writers she also started 12 Poems in 12 Months, a novel-writing challenge called 52 Scenes in 52 Weeks and the awesome 30 Days of Flash Fiction challenge. She loves coaching and doing manuscript appraisals. She is a trained copywriter and has earned her degree in Creative Writing. She has taught, coaxed, and encouraged writers for more than 10 years.
