Furious Gravity Highlights DC Women Writers

New fiction and non-fiction by 50 DC-area women–what could be better? I’m so honored that my essay, “Be the Ocean: Everyday Lessons in Rage,” is included. These stories andfurious-gravity-front-cover-no-bleeds essays take readers to unexpected places with grace and gravity. Edited by Melissa Scholes Young, this anthology is the 9th in the Grace and Gravity series founded by Richard Peabody to highlight the work of women writers. Despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Melissa and her team, including her students at American University, have managed to publish and promote this volume with style.
