I have two new pieces out this week.
The first is an essay I wrote for Lithub about what Tillie Olsen called the “triple life” of working, parenting, and writing, and the need for better childcare options. Click here if you’d like to read it.
The second is an article about abortion restrictions that went into effect this year in North Carolina. It looks particularly at their impact on one young mother who had to wait an entire week, in excruciating physical pain, to have an abortion. It was published in Slate; find it here.
Thanks for reading! I really do intend to publish the new website soon.
