Wonderful & powerful photo essay in undergumtree's newest issue. I'm kinda in love.
{drum roll please} it’s here, it’s here! The 3-year anniversary issue of Under the Gum Tree has just arrived and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This last year has been super exciting for us as we had 2 essays listed as Notable Essays in Best American Essays 2013 and we continue to grow, adding two new staff members to our editorial team. ~

We are celebrating our anniversary by: 
1) Hosting open (no fee) submissions for the month of October. We would love to read your best creative nonfiction. Submission guidelines can be found at underthegumtree.com/submit. ~

2) Launching a new quarterly webseries called Gum Tree Live on October 9 at 6 p.m. PDT. With each new issue of the mag, contributors will read a 5-min teaser of their piece and it will be live-streamed via Google Hangouts. Follow @undergumtree on Instagram/Twitter/Tumblr for updates. ~

Secrets of a Restricted Eater: 1) whipped coconut cream as a non-dairy creamer (in decaf coffee) & pancake topping. 2) #glutenfree pancakes thanks to a mix from Namaste Foods, a product I’m trying for the first time. |

A guest post that I wrote for goinswriter.com. 

Revising is improving—always improving, moving closer to the positive and true version of the story I want to be writing and living.”

There is no way I’d rather spend the last few official days of summer. It doesn’t matter that media & commercialism want to thrust us into fall and winter (we saw a snowman at Costco last week), I will cling to the #summer and the heat and the sun as long as I can. And, yes, @retrojam and I spent a Wednesday afternoon at the river. When you run your own business & make a living off of creative projects, you end up working 7 days a week most weeks. Instead of a regular weekend, we take time off when we can get it and, frankly, we wouldn’t trade it for anything. |

My kind of weekend morning. Getting up with just enough time to have a leisurely coffee before we start our day. He is off to work where he will be schmoozing and pouring #wine all day, and I am off to a #writing workshop where I will be talking creative nonfiction all day. Both of us perusing our passions. Also: we love having a new neighborhood cafe right down the street. Happy Saturday all! |

I’m so proud to announce that two essays from the October 2012 issue of @undergumtree are listed as notable essays in Best American Essays 2013. This is a huge honor for both the #writers and for my little #litmag. It’s even more exciting as my team and I work on the Oct 2014 issue, our 3-year anniversary issue. We have come a long way and I can’t wait to see what the next 3 years have for us.
