You Might Eat Organic, but You’re Full of Baloney




I’m excited to be included in Women Write Now Volume I, an anthology of personal stories of trauma and recovery from women around the world. Anthologies from Something Or Other Publishing have been increasingly successful, garnering excellent reviews and critical acclaim. You can learn a little bit more about my specific short story below:

You Might Eat Organic, but You’re Full of Baloney was originally published by Northwest Review and is now included in the Women Write Now anthology by Something or Other Publishing. I am honored to be included in this anthology along with other amazing women writers who each discuss their own stories of trauma and resilience.

You Might Eat Organic is a personal essay focused on an ex-boyfriend’s arrest for stalking. Funny, caustic, and filled with rage, this piece was written within 24 hours of the arrest and catalogs my evolving mental state and my path to empowerment in the aftermath of the event.
