Not Quite Ready For Deep Breaths Yet
Hello friends. Today is the day Indelible Ink goes back to our original Creative Nonfiction format. I made the decision back in September to switch our entire publication to All Politics All The Time in order to get our voices out there until after the election, and our writers certainly didn’t disappoint. I’m thrilled with the commitment, the enthusiasm, the emotions, and the insights in the stories we’ve published since then. Wow!
It’s been four days since the election and we don’t have a winner yet — though it looks at this moment as if Joe Biden’s lead will hold. (No secret that I hope so.) There’s nothing more we can do as writers at this end — it’s a matter of counting votes now — so we’re ready to get back to telling our stories and engaging in the personal.
I sincerely want to thank all of the great writers who gave us such great insight into what’s happening in our country, analyzing and exploring how we’ve been dealing with it. None of us knows where we go from here, but at Indelible Ink our doors will always be open to political writers.
Many of us do both — write about politics and write Creative Nonfiction, often at the same time. But other stories are waiting to be told and we’re open for business again.
If you’re a writer and want to submit your stories, please read the Guidelines first. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me. (Address is in the guidelines)
If you’re new to Indelible Ink, welcome! And if you’re a regular reader, thank you so much for your loyalty. We couldn’t do any of this without you.
