Hi GFC Fam,

This is our first newsletter and I have so many exciting things to announce:

First and foremost, the ladies of Grown Folks Conversation aka GFC softly launched its publication on August 15, 2022. GFC initially started as a Medium account, but now it’s an open publication where seasoned writers, preferably over 40 years old can post stories about their life experiences.

The publication is under construction, we’re open to suggestions and accepting submissions. Click on the pic below for more info:

GFC — Announcement

Writing Prompts and Great Pieces

We’ve extended the deadline for our soft launch and August/September issue here are our writing prompts:

Writing Prompt #1: When did you realize you were grown? Please include age, milestones and if it has a humorous spin — that’s a plus.

Writing Prompt #2: What does home mean to you and how has your definition evolved over the years?

Here is one of our first submissions:

Love Exists on the Other Side of Fear by Michelle Renee Lane
Read, clap, comment, and Tweet this great piece on love, life, and learning lessons at every age and stage of life.
