Meet the Contributors!

If you want to make [Goddess] laugh, tell her your plans.

Plan A was to launch this blog after a redesign and after all of the book festivals in late 2020. (LOL all cancelled)
Plan B was to launch this blog on June 1 with fun book reviews and joyful essays. (LOLsob civil unrest)

So welcome to Plan C. We’re launching a little later than we’d hoped and we’ve set aside our fun posts for the content that truly matters right now. Our contributors rallied and came up with the idea to begin with a series called Educate & Activate, focused on breaking down some of the social justice terms we’ve been seeing. The first post will be up tomorrow and it’s fantastic. This series was Natalia’s idea and she’s kicking it off with a post about the term anti-racism.

But first, who are our contributors?
