This week my colleague and friend, Julie Kibler, recieved The Call. You know, The Call, The Call we all want, The Call that will transform our lives, The Call that gives us validity, The Call that says, yes, you are a writer and you are recognized. This week Julie recieved the call from an agent, indicating interest in representing her. Not just any agent, but Elizabeth Weed.
I "met" Julie years ago, in an online writing class conducted by Barb Samuel and back then I was struck by the honesty of her writing, the depth, the beauty, the intelligence, the knowing. Have to say a little envious too. Julie's work is like a rich tapestry, bold beautiful colors embedded in silken threads. She is also one of the founders of "What Women Write," which I follow and you should too.
If anyone deserves to be recognized as a writer, it is she. Julie, to my knowledge, has had Elizabeth Weed in her sights for as long as I have known her. Julie's worked hard, she's perservered, she's risen to the call.
Congratulations, my friend. Bravo!!!
