Faithandculture2Every now and then, God calls me out from behind the page to lend my voice verbally into the public arena. Turns out, I enjoy speaking and engaging with audiences around the topics of writing, editing, faith, culture, and my story of living with/recovering from anorexia.  If you have an event that fits with these topics and need a speaker, feel free to reach out to me via leannesype@gmail.com.

Faith and Culture Writers Conference (2013, 2014, 2015)
