The Editorial Team


White Hydrangeas

A little bit about us.

We are a women owned and managed blog. We support women writers because we are women writers and know what it's like to submit work for publication. We accept short story, memoir, and poetry submissions.


Kate Becker


Kate founded GDLJ to support women writers. Too often good stories get overlooked. The mission of GDLJ is to publish well-written material that adheres to the structure of a short story. 

Kate is a published author and works as a developmental and line editor. 

In a previous life she was an award-winning blueberry jam maker.
