I know, it's a lot of hashtags, but this week, I’m excited to promote #ThatGirlCanWrite !
I’m constantly on the search for publications for women of color that give us an opportunity to share our stories on our own terms.
#ThatGirlCanWrite was established by writer Lauren Small, MFA and had its beginnings as an Instagram page that promoted women of color who write. It promoted all women of color from beginners to established professionals, from authors to bloggers, from fashionistas to political leaders. Eventually, #ThatGirlCanWrite grew beyond Instagram onto Twitter and then to its own website.
Now, #ThatGirlCanWrite is open for submissions!
On their quest to give women of color a platform to share their stories, they are now accepting blogs, essays, and poetry to publish.
So, if you are looking for a place made for women of color by women of color to publish your writing, you can submit your work at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will see my work on there in the near future. Until then, go check them out!
