Yup, I’ve been pretty excited about this for some time, now, but had to keep it under my hat. I pitched the article and it was accepted in August. I’d thought for some time that the Days for Girls story I’d written for Stitch and Quilt Country needed to be told to a wider audience, but I just couldn’t decide where. My sister has a subscription to O and when I read the copy she’d left at our cabin this summer I realized it would be the perfect place to tell that story. Turns out it was. They did a lovely job with the layout, headlines, and caption.
As happy as I am to have a clip from O, I’m also thrilled that Days for Girls is getting the publicity that comes with coverage in a magazine whose circulation is 2.7 million (and that’s just the paid readership—think how many people pick it up at the dentist’s office or hair salon). I just love it when my writing does some good for someone or something good!
