 Being seen and heard are like light shining through a glass window pane. ~ A. Adams

Invitation for women ages 18 & up to share their voices to two Writing Prompts. If interested, please read and follow the prompts below. Complete the Authorization Form and email them back to me.  Your voice matters.

This exercise is more about voice, than critique of writing. Participants are given the opportunity to be anonymous when your writing is published. I ask that you meet the criteria as noted in the Submission guidelines below including honesty and authenticity.  Complete the RELEASE form as instructed. Thank you! I look forward to hearing and sharing your voice!

Goal: 50 voices – let’s be heard!
