Today marks the launch of the first issue of the online magazine KINDRED!
This publication was borne out of a group of women writers who have met weekly for almost five years to share the writing life: doing writing prompts, lamenting rejections, celebrating successes, critiquing, and laughing. A lot.
Among us we have gotten into MFA programs, written mainstream, young adult and middle grade novels, poems, essays, memoirs, how-tos, and screenplays, and begun the concepts of many many stories.
These women. Are so talented.
Not only that, they are insightful, witty, humorous, deep, and fantastic friends. We decided to collaborate and I can't believe it took us this long to come up with the idea!
Look for monthly offerings around a theme. This month: GROW and I'm writing about pruning my home the KonMari way. That is, major purging and reorganizing ala The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo.
Grab a cup of warm, put your feet up, and stay awhile. We'd love to spend some time with you.
