Hello, and welcome to Marinagraphy. I began this site after I signed a contract with an agent for my creative non-fiction book DROWNING SQUIRRELS, which discusses the value of understanding our mothers’ herstories so that we can understand who we are as women and as mothers to our own children.
I actually discovered She Writes by researching the first editor who rejected my book — all roads lead to enlightenment and even your sense of self-understanding. I’m glad I found She Writes through her.
Everyone gave me the same information: create an author web site and start blogging — March will be my first full year of blogging, and my writing has become centered on empowerment through education. My first mothers, sisters, and friends were literary characters I discovered in literature, so it’s no stretch that I end up writing. At Marinagraphy, I write about all things centered on female experiences — mothering my children with love, in spite of my precarious childhood; female issues like rape, power, marriage, and relationships addressed in poetry and literature — the teacher in me; sexism in the media — for children and for women, since the media seems to have an insipid and sexist attitude towards us; and I find courageous women to celebrate once a week — from a time when they did not have the rights that we do today.
So check out my blog and let me know what you think. And thank you for taking the time to visit.
