Every week, we are going to celebrate noteworthy achievements and upcoming events happening within the She Writes Press community in our new “Friday High-Fives!” (formerly celebrated monthly via the monthly memo). 

From author interviews to launch parties, we are shining a light on a few of the fantastic things happening in our world.

If you have coverage you’d like to share (that hasn’t already been sent or shared), a new award to your name or an event planned, please let Leila know at leila@sparkpointstudio.com and we’ll get you included in an upcoming Friday High-Five!
