Nancy Woodbridge on Writing as a Form of Self-Expression

 

As a daughter of an artist and poet, Nancy Garfield Woodbridge started writing at an early age. In fact, she wrote her first novel at the tender age of eight. Over the years, Nancy has viewed writing as an artistic expression and an impulse that prompts proper action.

Nancy has already published her works under traditional publishers in the past, namely, her children’s books The Tuesday Elephant and The Dancing Monkey, which were both well received. As children’s books are Nancy’s chosen niche, she later enrolled at the Institute for Children’s Literature where she learned more valuable things and began working on a few more manuscripts.

Not long after, Nancy began sending her manuscripts to traditional publishers, but after several rejection slips, she finally decided to go the self-publishing route.

Eliminating the concept of “rejection,” Nancy has found herself more productive than ever. Since 2012 she has published seven books under Xlibris and is currently working on three new children’s books that are expected to come out in 2015 or 2016.

For Nancy, writing is a form of self-expression used to unburden one’s soul. She wants young people to know that artistic expression is needed and wanted everywhere, as it symbolises the democracy of the human soul—a universal gift to all humankind.
