Bold Words is an opinion and response blog solely maintained and operated by Ian Kirkpatrick, creative writer for fiction and nonfiction. She received a Bachelors Degree in Theater from The University of Alaska Anchorage in 2013 and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Tampa in 2016.
As a conservative in a left-leaning industry, it can be pretty maddening to quietly say nothing and nod your head just to get along. It also doesn’t do anything to maintain moral values. She started this blog to speak back, give an alternative voice in writing, and hopefully make some kind of difference. She’s an American, a constitutionalist, and an advocate for free speech.
She enjoys writing fiction and loves exploring the world and its absurdities through the creation of fiction. She has a darker sense of humor and a penchant for truth. She’s doing the best she can to figure out the world around her while.
She has written one novel and is currently seeking representation and publication for it. She has started working on her second novel and has a handful of short stories. She looks forward to writing more but looks way more forward to the day she can write as her day job. 😉
And hopefully, you’ll get to read some of that in the near future. We can only hope at this point.
