Sometimes I like to step back and allow someone else to speak about issues in the publishing world, at any stage of the process and from any perspective. Since I also blog about life, parenting, and spiritual issues, those are all welcome too.
Both anonymous and credited posts are welcome. It can be tricky to express the joys and frustrations of the industry because there may be consequences. On the other hand, many people are comfortable having their name attached to their writing. Either way is fine.
Topics which people may want to write about:
- Family life
- LGBTQIA+ topics
- Writing stress
- Social issues
- The publishing industry
- Genre-specific concerns
- Spiritual trauma
- The intersections of any of the above
If you would like to submit a post, anonymous or not, click the link below. Note: Filling out the form is not a guarantee the post will appear on my web site. Some reasons I may reject a post:
- It’s hostile, aggressive, or accusatory toward a specific person
- It contains violent or discriminatory language or direct threats
- It’s unreadable or confusing or requires too much editing
- It doesn’t fit any of the themes of my blog (e.g., life lessons you learned on your cruise to the Bahamas or how to make the world’s perfect smoothie)
There is no tone-policing here. You are not required to “keep it positive,” nor are you required to refrain from anger. Joy and humor are equally welcome. Rudeness is not tolerated. The purpose of anonymity is to protect the writer, but it is not mandatory.
