I was honored to be asked to write an essay for the GCLS (Golden Crown Literary Society) Membership Spotlight. In case you don’t know, GCLS is the leading lesbian-themed literary organization for editors, publishers, readers, writers, and friends/supporters. They offer so much to our community from networking to learning opportunities. Learn more about it here.
