Dear Feminine Rising Contributors,
If you didn't already see our response to the LA Times' breaking story about Anna March (our previous foreword author), you can read our official response here.
I'm thrilled to announce, my co-editor Lara Lillibridge and I have replaced Ms. March with writer, professor, and editor, Amy Hudock,Ph.D. Dr. Hudock influenced me as a writer and student early in my collegiate career. Like all her students, I can say her impact on me has been lifelong. I value her insight and opinion so much, I was truly nervous to hand over the manuscript. She loved it as much as we do! We are excited to have her strong voice as part of this beautiful collection of women's writing and we know you'll appreciate her, too. Welcome aboard, Dr. Hudock!
Don't forget to follow all the career news of your fellow contributors and send us your highlights via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
