Candis Corley

"I have always wanted to be a writer, and knew that it was what my heart wanted. After a lot of researching different schools and programs, I knew that NCC was the best fit for me. I needed to expand my creative writing abilities but also learn more about myself as a professional writer. This degree has taught me more about my writing, how to market myself, how to know the business of publishing, and how to fight for my work."
