The Blue Lyra Review is now open for nonfiction submissions. We’re looking for work that doesn’t shy away from how hard life can be but which also explores courage, resilience, and life’s beauty. Please show up on the page with a unique voice and a personal stake in a discernible conflict. We want to see work that weaves into the fabric of the essay a shift in perspective, a struggle towards greater understanding, a meaningful resolution, or at least some good questions. No safe, saccharin stories or unearned happy endings, please. Find out more at: http://bluelyrareview.com/submissions/.

Hi Fellow Nonfiction Writers:

 

I'm new and still learning how to use SHE WRITES.  Nonetheless, I recently posted my first article/blog on editing and thought to share this article with forum members.  Perhaps fellow writers will find the tips and techniques useful for future projects.  No catch, no hype - just sharing as one writer to another...(smile)

 

Connected by the written word,

I've been "Peggy" and "Betty" in one lifetime.
