As a freelance writer and blogger, Tammy Cupp’s favored writing style is the Narrative Personal Essay. This style of writing allows her to connect with others who share common emotions, experiences, and interests. She has written articles for Countryside, Good Old Days, Backwoods Home, and Grit Magazines. She has won awards for her original works of fiction, personal essays, and poetry with her submissions to the Wytheville, Virginia’s 2022 and 2023 Chautauqua Festival Creative Writing contest.
Tammy and her husband Mike are former residents of the Shenandoah Valley who are semi-retired and now living on a 50-acre homestead in Southwest Virginia. They breed and raise Miniature Jersey cows and have two dogs, five barn cats, and one old goat. The animals on the farm often contribute to the subject matter for her personal essays. When not farming or writing, Tammy enjoys reading, Sunday drives on Blue Ridge Mountain backroads, and daily hikes with her dog, Buddy.
This lecture is a BRCC Creative Writing Club event and sponsored by the BRCC Cultural Affairs Committee. Admission is free and the public is welcome.
