find me on the internet
To quote their own About page, Alma means "a woman of childbearing age who has not had kids." I am a woman of childbearing age who has not had kids, and I love contributing to this female-centric site.
At the encouragement of friends, I began chronicling my silly, inexperienced, and uncomfortable dating experiences.
This started as a place to house work I was producing for two writing classes - Creative Nonfiction and Journalism: Deconstructing the Blog. Now, it functions like a digital flash drive, holding pieces that do not fit elsewhere, were experiments, or are geared toward its loyal readership of one (I am the one).
Several years ago, I wrote an article that sounded a lot like a commencement speech and submitted it to HelloGiggles. It was warmly received by the editors, and I was asked to be a regular contributor.
In anticipation of the launch of their new website, The Conversation asked women to submit articles on a range of suggested topics to be featured on launch day. My chosen piece is linked here.
