STORY TITLE: "Beyond Describe"
Julie Jo Severson, former PR girl now freelance writer, journalist, editor, and lost-and-found attendant for two teens and a tween. Still an English major at heart, she finds solace in writing her way through those universal experiences that bind us together. In 2015, she launched her storytelling blog Carvings on a Desk (carvingsonadesk.com) to reconnect with her own voice swirling around in the middle. Since then, her creative nonfiction has also been featured on Ten to Twenty Parenting, Midlife Boulevard, Mamalode, BonBon Break, and elsewhere. She lives in Minnesota with her husband of twenty-plus years and their three kids.
