Being Known — Checking In!
Newsletter #1 — a thank you to you
I am not often at loss for words as I am today writing my first-ever newsletter; a thank you to all of you.
In this month of November, a month of Thanks as we head into Thanksgiving here in the United States, I thank you for coming along this journey of self-discovery with me, for trusting me with your heart, and for lovingly wrapping your virtual arms around mine.
I told myself that I would write a newsletter once the publication reached 50 followers, and we are at 53 today, so here I am.
Thank you for being here, in this home for my words, in this safe-space for our words.
I created Being Known to serve as a home for myself, and others, to bring forth our courageous authentic selves and experience the range of human emotions together; sharing our experiences of being alive with one another, giving our words wings, coming together in joy and in pain and lifting each other up.
It is a place for us to walk together, holding hands on our ongoing journeys of becoming perfectly imperfect.
And I couldn’t be happier with those of you have joined hands with me already, as readers, writers, and editors, to make this possible as we grow together slowly and intentionally in our writing, in our hearts, and in our experiences of being human.
I am excited to share with you some pieces from our first two months. Grab a great cup of coffee and indulge with us in these stories from the heart (and microfiction too — because life is all about balance).
Check out our amazing editors/writers and follow them — it will make your heart smile: Tina L. Smith, Aimée Gramblin
Check out our talented writers and follow their profiles — you’ll be glad you did: Gayle Kurtzer-Meyers, Sarene B. Arias, Carolyn Riker, Kate Mackay, Geetika Sethi, Vixen Lea
Thank you everyone — I am excited to continue to grow together!

*We are adding writers slowly and diligently; looking for strong writers who write both stories and poetry from the heart (or that write microfiction), who need little editing and preferably are editors of other publications already. Feel free to reach out if you wish to join us.
