Have you heard of The HerStories Project? Editors Jessica Smock and Stephanie Sprenger started with a shared site to talk about women’s friendships, which turned into an anthology about friendships, which turned into another anthology on friendship breakups. (I’m reviewing the breakup book next week and giving away a copy.)
Wait– there’s more. Jessica and Stephanie are now accepting submissions for a third anthology on postpartum depression. They also started an advice column, which I get to write. (THIS IS A DREAM FOR ME! I’m so excited!)
AND, because Jessica and Stephanie are not busy enough, they’re running a personal essay writing bootcamp class online from September 22 – Oct 18. There is still space!
(EDITED TO SAY THE CLOSE IS OVER. NEW CLASS STARTING OCT 27 is: WRITE YOUR WAY TO A BETTER BLOG!)
From The HerStories Project site:
Are you a writer who has wanted to try her hand at writing a personal essay or a short memoir piece but you weren’t sure where to start? Are you a blogger who wants to submit to new places and show different sides of yourself as a writer? Have you always wanted to learn how to write about your personal experiences so that they communicate larger truths and meaning to others? Do you simply want to challenge yourself as a writer and get support and feedback from other writers?
