I'm so excited to announce I'll be working as a contributor for Hello Giggles.
In addition to writing regular articles, Hello Giggles will also publish some essays from my grad school thesis Growing Up Weird.
In fact, you can read the first one right now.
Zooey Deschanel founded the website a few years ago with Molly McAleer
and Sophia Rossi.
They wanted to create a safe, positive community
on the internet for young women. To say I'm onboard with this sentiment
would be the understatement of the century. (I exaggerate in increments of a hundred when I get excited, okay?)
I can personally vouch for
the fact they've already succeeded. For example, my editors are allowing me to retain the copyright for my thesis essays. If you know anything about the world of publishing, you know how wonderful and unusual this is. A year ago, I wouldn't have had the courage to ask. Two years ago, I wouldn't have known enough about the legalities to ask.
Here's to growth, positivity and new adventures!
