A delightful part of getting back to work is that I get glorious opportunities to add my voice across the web on a variety of topics. One of my great lessons from going viral is that I am a much happier rainbow when my words are part of the story, not the story. Here is where to find my words across the web right now…
- 54 Women Tell Us Why They Stand With Planned Parenthood by Emma McGowan – Bustle: This is a powerful collection of diverse voices on the how and why they stand with Planned Parenthood. I am one of those voices with an excerpt from #IStandwithPP, #Pinkout Day & My Family. Thrilled to see that a number of friends and peers are also included. Please share widely.
- Women Are Tweeting Antidepressant Selfies to Fight Mental Health Stigma by Ej Dickson – .Mic: Coverage of the wonderful #MedicatedandMighty hashtag and it’s creator Erin Jones, who I utterly adore. Included is an interview with me touching on #OrgasmQuest and how it can be even more difficult to speak about life with mental illness as a Mother.
Selfies Fight the Stigma Around Taking Antidepressants by Charlotte Hilton Andersen – Shape: Okay, this barely counts, I admit it. More coverage of #MedicatedandMighty that includes one of my tweets on the topic. I’m adding it though because I never fathomed that my name would be in Shape, and I love their comment “While this woman shows how her mental illness is just one small part of her colorful identity:” Why thank you, that’s very kind.
I believe these are all that have gone live, with a few more delightful links and projects to come soon. One more link before I’m off, signal boosting an excellent opportunity for emerging writers via Bitch.
Bitch Media, for almost 20 years an independent, nonprofit feminist media organization, is pleased to announce the Bitch Media Fellowships for Writers, a series of three-month intensive writing fellowships whose goal is to develop, support, and amplify emerging, diverse voices in feminist, activist, and pop-culture media. The program will be directed by Bitch cofounder Andi Zeisler.
The four subject areas are:
- Reproductive rights & justice
- Pop-culture criticism
- Global feminism
Head over to Bitch’s website for the rest of the details. I’m seriously considering applying for one of the Reproductive rights & justice.
Otherwise my darlings, it has been a stressful week for extended and chosen family. I’ve been a bit quiet while helping loves, but as things seem to be improving I’m looking forward to posting regularly.
