I’d wanted to write for the HuffPost for a long time but had no idea how to get the gig, so I finally googled up Arianna Huffington’s email address and wrote her asking about it. She emailed me back in 10 minutes and said she’d love to have me as a HuffPost writer!
I enjoyed writing an article about indie publishing sensation AMANDA HOCKING. But my all-time favorite HuffPost piece was called ART AND ADVENTURE: A MANIFESTO FOR WOMEN AND GRRRLS.
Mary Pauline Lowry has worked as a forest firefighter, screenwriter, open water
lifeguard, construction worker, and advocate in the movement to end violence
against women. Due to no fault of her sweet parents, at 15 she ran away from
home and made it all the way to Matamoros, Mexico. She believes girls should
make art, have adventures, and read books that show them the way.
