Seeking Submissions

Remember when you were grown and gone. You thought you knew everything you needed to survive on your own but quickly found out there were lots of things you didn’t know.

Fill In The Gaps in a new magazine geared for women of color.  FITG  helps women understand things their mother may have not told them or that they didn’t listen to at the time.

It will be light and fun, except when it is not because some issues are not fun. It will cover women’s health issues, legal, weight loss, spiritual needs, exercise, fashion, justice, employment, parenting, relationships, men, activism, side hustles, etc.

If this sounds fun, send me your pitch for an article.  If I like your idea, your story will be part of the magazine and you may have a featured spot.  Send your pitches to uppcreative@yahoo.com. Please allow a couple of weeks for a response.

Book of The Month: Destiny’s Dilemma

Print

An African American woman moved home to take care of her dying mother giving up the opportunity to experience a world beyond segregation. Zoraida Hughes Williams finds that some things have changed about her hometown of Fort Worth, Texas while some have stayed the same, like Hell’s Half Acre, an area where saloons, prostitution and gambling runs wild. Like most of the residents, she wants to keep her head down and stay away from trouble, but it comes in the unlikely form of an Anglo Baptist preacher. He messes up everything and almost gets them killed.

 

Destiny’s Dilemma is available on Amazon and Books to Read

One of The Other Projects

A storyteller uses different mediums to tell their tales. In 2014, I produced, directed and wrote my first feature film, Family Tree.It is the story of a group of young women who try to plan family reunion with people who hate each other, but an underlying force brings them together.
It is currently on sale for rent or purchase in Japan, Germany and the UK. In order to release it in the US, I need to have it closed captioned (accepting donations) Here is snapshots from the movie.
