Traditionally, a Grande Dame is an older woman who is well-respected in her community. At Grande Dame Literary, we believe there is a Grande Dame in every woman. Age is irrelevant. Women's voices are important. Women's opinions and thoughts are equal to all and second to none.
Lift your vibrant voice and write. Be heard. Grande Dame Literary is listening. Women supporting women who write.
Write. We are here for you.
WHY, THANK YOU.
I've been called many things as a woman: loud, outspoken, too much. I'd like to be known as vibrant.
I have never been so delighted to receive a rejection letter. Thank you to the editor that took the time to read my story, give it some thought, and send me feedback.
Thank you very much for publishing my work. I feel honored.
