    It is with great pleasure that I read about WCYR and am most happy to become a new member. Briefly, I am new to Richmond Hill; I moved here to get married, from Thunder Bay last July. I have had a long career as a social worker and retired from the hospital in Thunder Bay last year. Throughout my life I have loved reading and writing and have written on and off. Now I have time to purse writing in a different way. Along the way I have attended writing workshops, including with Natalie Goldberg, and the Humber Summer School for Writers on two occasions. Many years ago, I was a student in journalism at Ryerson. I look forward to discovering and to participating in WCYR activities and to pursuing my writing. Lastly, I look very much forward to meeting other member. Sincerely, Allyson Tojcic

    About:
    I grew up in Keswick. Studied a range of subjects at Western University, before finishing in the English department but leaving with no degree. I moved back to Keswick, and now I work from home part time at a call centre. Since leaving school I have been writing and reading daily for three years.
    Writing Focus or Interests:
    Literary or intellectual fiction. Ideally my pieces are as formless, even plotless, as possible; I tend to write caricatures over realism. My writing can be pessimistic and about a poorer class of people. I'm also an essayist and literary critic.
