In May of this year, the Editorial Director for Verve Magazine reached out to commission a piece for their Entertainment issue. We went back and forth over email before finally honing in on a topic we were both happy with. For the first time, I wrote, set the piece aside, edited and sent it out. More rounds of editing followed and then months of waiting until the piece went to print a couple of days ago. Today, the article is live on their website.
I am thrilled with the illustration and the sight of my name in print. Dreams truly come true albeit decades later.
I’d love to hear your comments.
