Last month, I was happy to have my second publication in Tenderly, a vegan-focused Medium site. The essay is called “I Don’t Feel Comfortable as a Vegan Activist Because of My Evangelical Upbringing.”
This publication felt special to me because it bridges my past and current writing selves. Until May, I thought of myself as a creative writer and primarily focused on writing and submitting creative nonfiction and fiction. In May, I became a full-time freelance writer. Personal essays in mainstream publications (by which I mean not literary magazines) are a way for me to connect these two writerly identities.
For those who didn’t see my first Tenderly publication that came out last July, check out “Should Vegans Eat Honey?”
