Who am I?

I collaborate with writers from the first draft to publication.

Hey there friends, I'm Cam Gillings. As a storyteller and crafter of the fantastical, I love sharing and giving back to the remarkable writing community I became a part of three years ago. 

For months I debated about the focus of my website.

I knew I wanted to help, encourage and motivate other writers, but after a few failed attempts I realized ‘regular blogging,’ as I call it, wasn’t for me.

For one, I didn’t want to regurgitate what I’ve already seen being done by authorpreneurs I admire. Two, it didn’t feel me, and I believe a strong platform of any kind is built on genuine connections. And three, I wanted the format of my website to be something I love and enjoyed. The more passionate I am about anything, the better I am at it.

So, instead of recreating the wheel, I’ll be showing how the wheels created by other fabulous creators in our writing community have aided me.

When I’m not deconstructing my writing process to share with you on The Writerly Owl, I’m knocking out words for my YA Fantasy novel or brainstorming new ways to conquer the world.
