The Writer: Michael Kitlas

A sales trainer once told me, "A man only gets to use an exclamation point once in his life." I used to write merely as an outlet. After taking classes with Gotham Writer's Workshop, and with Jacob Krueger at his studio, I fell in love with the craft. Writing each and every day has become my "exclamation point." What's yours?
