—My piece, Free Bird, is on my favorite site today, Feminine Collective.
~Today I am honored to be interviewing, Julie Anderson, creator of the empowering, unfiltered blog, Feminine Collective.
Without further ado, here is Julie!
You know what terrifies me, makes me go cold and yucky inside? Well, I’ll tell you.
—We chose a winner!
My Inner Chick’s team read and savored 74 submissions for our 2nd annual writing contest.
We valued and appreciated your raw words, honesty, authenticity, pain, and sharing your real-life, unbelievable, amazing stories with us.
What an honor to read all of them.
In particular, one story by Reut Amit, He Never Hit Me, caused us to rise up from our seats and yell:
“That’s the one!”
Without further ado, here it is.
~I am pleased to have my poem, You Rise, published on FEMININE COLLECTIVE today.
I fell upon this beautiful, empowering site about a year ago. The stories, intellect, insight, support, and poetry about women exuberate me. I suggest you check out more of the work on their pages!
( This short observation was written by my dynamic, amazing, talented pen-pal, Mercy Adhiambo. She sends me her personal journals with several remarkable stories about her adventures in journalism, life, love, and insights about Kenya. I particularly appreciated and loved this one! She was about 20 years old when she wrote it.)
Throughout the years, I’ve heard, unbelievably, that several writers appreciate rejection letters. Some of these individuals wall-paper their walls with these correspondences. Others pin the, “we regret to inform you’s” to their bulletin boards as reminders to Keep on Truckin.’
