I’m so honored to be a recipient of a Meret grant from The Freya Project (whose work you should follow immediately if you’re not already, especially in these days of darkness for abortion access). This news and note came at a time when I was (am) struggling in my project, and it means a lot to have an organization that believes so strongly in the power of stories put faith in the one I’m working on telling. I’m so grateful to receive this honor and funding—which, of course, goes right into the summer childcare budget. Much love and respect for this powerful organization and the work they do to raise the voices of women and non-binary writers and citizens.
