Good news!

Last year, I wrote about “taking my writing further“, beyond the safe space of this blog.

Well, guess what.

I received my first acceptance email πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜³

It’s a fledgling local project, a prose and poem anthology, started by two twenty-somethings eager for change, passionate about the written word. So naturally, especially if you’re me, it seemed too good to be true.

But well, the book is being printed. All the proceeds are going to local NGOs, which elevates this already dizzying experience to heights that have me shaking from fear and exhilaration both.

And my name’s on it somewhere, among 49 other featured writers.

So thank you.

Thank you for reading, thank you for your kind words spread over 4 years now, according to WordPress. My writing would have forever remained between the lines of my notebooks without you.

  2. Wow, this is amazing news!! It must be an incredible feeling, to have written for so long and to now see those words, written out on paper, set wings and fly… what a feeling it must be to see them in print! Moreover, for a really good cause πŸ˜ƒ
    I feel lucky to have found your blog and to have read (and will keep on reading!) these beautiful pieces, so powerful yet so lyrical, like prose and poetry put together. My best wishes from Italy, keep us all updated 😊
