A Niche to Call Our Own: Building Vela Magazine

Posted by Amanda Giracca on September 25, 2014 at 9:00am 5 Comments

It all started with a need for a home.

In the summer before the second year of my MFA program, my friend and colleague Sarah Menkedick wrote me a long and frantic e-mail.

“I feel split between worlds,” she wrote. “Between internet world and print world, elite Harper's world [where she was an intern] and gritty backpacker/travel world, school world and work world. Ultimately I think I am going to have to let something go, to move closer to one and further from the others.”

We’d been having these conversations all throughout grad school. How were we going to make this writing thing work? I was struggling to define what kind of writer I was—nature writer? Science writer? Neither sounded quite right. Night classes were always…

The 3 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting My Blog

Posted by Pat Roa-Perez on September 20, 2014 at 5:30am 2 Comments

This past Monday I finally launched my blog, When The Noise StopsIt took a while to get here, almost a year. The reason it took so long: I didn’t know much about what a blog was. When I look back, there are certain things I wish I’d known before starting and that would’ve made it easier and shortened the time to complete.



For those contemplating starting a blog, let me share the three things I wish I’d known before. 

1. How much do you know about what a blog is?

I thought I knew something, but after I started, I realized how little I knew. Creating a blog is like a…

[REALITY CHECK] - This week's topic is [BLANK]

Posted by Zetta Brown on September 24, 2014 at 7:00am 0 Comments

I recently encountered an obstacle in the way of my creativity that prevented my expressing myself in a literary manner.

In other words, I got tripped up by writer's block. I'm not ashamed to say it. I'm not one of these people who go about smugly and say, with a patronizing tone, "Writer's block is all in your mind."

Well, duh, Sherlock.

There is nothing wrong with your mind drawing empty from the creativity well. To me, that's just a sign saying that you should stop and take a break, and instead of trying to force something to happen, wait for it to arrive.

As I was trying to deal with my latest bout of "The Block," I looked over some of my previous articles when one of them jumped up and began to throttle me. Not literally, of course,…

Books By Their Covers -- Have You Dreamed Of Yours?

Posted by Kamy Wicoff on September 22, 2014 at 7:30am 17 Comments

TA DA! Last Friday I got the final front and back cover art for the novel I have been working on since October of 2011 (not that anyone is counting), a wondrous journey I have shared with all of you. It's called Wishful Thinking. What do you think??

It won't pub until April 2015, but as many of you know, books have to be finished months beforehand in order to get a crack at long-lead press (like women's magazines), at certain reviews, and to better the chances of getting blurbs from readers who like to hold a paper copy in their hands rather than perusing a PDF. She Writes Press also has a longer turnaround time from finished manuscript to published book than self-published authors do because we are distributed by Ingram Publisher Services,…

Textbook Love

Today I wished my life could be like a textbook. You know the rather comprehensive Houghton Mifflin kind, so I could know when love was in fact not (a) pain and that those little fluttering signs, both felt and seen, are actually its manifestation. And perhaps I would not be one of the stellar students. But for sure I would know the fundamentals: a certain type of "hooked on phonics" reality that would take me through the basic vocabulary of intimacy, especially providing…

Your Author Platform Is Not Your Social Media Following

I’ve spent the past five or six years not only educating authors about how to build an author platform, but about how to position themselves in such a way that the platform they already have truly shines.


So this week, when I received multiple emails and links asking what I thought about an…
