I don’t bite! At least not on a first (submission) date.
I know what it’s like to be a budding writer—to entertain the feelings of self-doubt, vulnerability, and downright frustration that come with the territory. But I also know what it’s like to build a life as a writer, and I can assure you it’s worth every lesson in humility and dedication it takes to get there. There’s no magic handbook for getting published, but the first step is submitting to someone like me, who’s aching to read the work of every ambitious, committed creative out there, whatever their style or area of interest. Why? It’s my passion. As someone who benefited so much from the generosity, heartfelt advice, and kindness of others in establishing her career, there’s nothing more rewarding than returning the favor.
