Welcome to By My Pen, written and curated by Shannon Simcox. A little about me: I’m a writer, journalist, avid reader, Penn State alum and Philly sports fanatic. Here, I will share with you some of my creative writings as they progress, methods and pointers for writing in general, what I’m reading and beautiful work from authors who I admire. I hope you enjoy it!
