Fearless She Wrote Newsletter
Fearless readers and writers — it’s July.
How? How is it already July? And yet, here we are — moving both quickly and slowly (somehow at both speeds, simultaneously), into the summer months. We’ve managed to remain busy here at Fearless, reading and publishing your incredible stories, and also working on a couple of other projects.
We’ve been working on our podcast, Fearless She Spoke!
That’s right! The Fearless She Wrote editors are now hosting a bi-weekly podcast. The episodes are presented round-table style, and we’re delving into conversations around feminism, mental health, and the world today!
We’re looking forward to growing this podcast with you — and we’re hoping to invite guest speakers to join our conversations very soon.
Fearless She Spoke can be found on Spotify, iTunes, or your other favorite podcast streaming site. Additionally, we link all episodes from our website, Fearless She Wrote, as soon as they are available.
We’ve also launched a Patreon!
We never imagined that our community would grow to be the empowering place that it is, and we could never have done it without you.
We could not be prouder, or more humbled by our brilliant and beautiful writers and their endless willingness to share their vulnerabilities and voices with the world.
The $5 level of our Patreon includes one bonus podcast episode per month (topic chosen by you — our Patreon supporters!) and a chance at winning our Monthly Merch Draw.
Your willingness to support us means the world to us, and allows us to dedicate more time and resources toward managing the safe space that is Fearless She Wrote.
For more information about our Patreon, please feel welcome to click here, or find us at Patreon.com by searching “Fearlesscommunity.”
Coming soon: Fearless She Wrote & Fearless She Spoke merchandise!
At this time next month, we hope to be ready to launch our Fearless merchandise. We’re currently working with design teams and online stores to bring you Fearless stickers, t-shirts, and mugs — among others!
The Fearless store will be linked to our website — so stay tuned for updates!
As always, we wish you safety, happiness, and health. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
