A Cornered Gurl is Back
And I have missed it so much!
Being that I am getting the care I need for keratoconus and will soon be introduced to scleral contacts to enhance my vision, I felt it best to get started again here in A Cornered Gurl. I have truly missed it.
This will be our clean slate. A chance for ACG to move forward for the remainder of 2022, and walk into 2023 with an exhilarating presence and a resounding, WE ARE BACK pumping through our veins and leaving our mouths.
I have had a fair share of writers ask me from time to time if I would ever get ACG up and running again, and I thought (at those times) that I would not be able to do so. This publication is too much of my heart, soul, and mind for me not to pick it back up and lend your words the love and space they need.
It is time.
A few things have changed, but not many. There is a new logo and a new publication cover, but the heart of ACG is still the same.
What is the theme?
A Cornered Gurl: We want the REAL you. A Cornered Gurl is a space for writers to “come as they are” and truly be who they are.
What will I publish?
•Heartwork (to include fiction (1,200 words max), non-fiction (1,200 words max), & poetry) •Tales of the South •Our Story (Stories about who you & and your family are) •Micropoetry •Challenges
A sidenote about poetry: All poetry should be single-spaced. To do this, you’ll need to be on a laptop or computer and use the shortcuts “SHIFT + ENTER” to make this happen. Or, if you’re like me, you can draft your poem in another word document that allows single-line spacing and then copy + paste your poem to Medium’s draft/story option.
When will I publish content?
Mondays, Fridays, and Sundays by 7:00 pm, US ET/EDT. A total of 8–9 pieces will be published on those days.
For those of you who were here for ACG’s start back in 2017 as a standalone publication for my work only to watch it transition to include other writers as well in 2019, I hope you will join me once again.
If you wish to become a writer for A Cornered Gurl, please adhere to the submission guidelines and follow through accordingly.
I cannot wait to begin this journey with you again.
