Ersilia Pompilio is one of Writing Pad’s loyal students who has blossomed into a published writer and notable performer. She says, “Without Writing Pad, I’m not sure if the creative part of me would have ever came out of the closet.” Since stepping out of her dusty closet and diving into Writing Pad’s classes she has published: a short story, “Our Little Hospital Ghost,” an op-ed, “Remember, Nurses Are Human Too,” and an essay, “A Day In The Life Of An NP: The Struggle for Understanding.”


Ersilia has also taken her storytelling talent to the stage with her one-woman performance, “The Nurse and The Hypochondriacs” which is going to be in Fringe Fest 2015. Additionally, she’s graced the web with her blog, Notoriouslysinglegirl. Her publications and blog’s reputation have landed her prize money, free vacations, free cocktails, and free coffee! “It’s been a fun and interesting ride! Thanks so much for helping me get started,” Ersilia acknowledges.


Writing Pad couldn’t be more proud of Ersilia and her accomplishments. Congratulations, Ersilia! We look forward to hearing what’s next in store for the Notoriously Single Girl!
