My name is Melissa T. Shultz and this is a blog for women who enjoy the sisterhood born from storytelling.
I write for newspapers and magazines and am an editor for Jim Donovan Literary in Dallas, Texas. I also teach creative nonfiction at the non-profit Writer’s Garrett. Prior to freelance work, I was Director of Creative Services for a trade association in Washington, D.C., and held positions with Lord and Taylor’s Advertising Division in New York, and NUS Training Corporation. My essays and articles have appeared in publications such as: The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, Better Health and Living, Reader’s Digest, Ladies’ Home Journal, Newsweek.com, The New York Times, Huff Post, The L.A. Times, and aired on Mother Earth News (formerly CNN Radio). Follow me on Twitter: @MelissaTShultz and
