One of my non-resolutions at the beginning of this year was to do some writing and/or photography for purposes other than my blog. While I love sharing all sorts of nonsense here with you, I wanted the challenge of having something go before other people's eyes before being published. I decided to continue with my HandPicked Nation posts, and was considering creating content for some sort of independent physical printed publication, too. It's only March, and I'm happy to say that I've done it!

Kindred magazine is the brainchild of Amanda from The Habit of Being, and I have a piece in Issue Two: Sow, which is now available for pre-order. It includes photos of my favourite place in the world, and some words which are the truest I've ever written, although they're not at all like my writing here. Which kind of fits the challenge I gave myself nicely, I think. I'm very excited to hold it in my hands.

There's a complete list of contributors I'm delighted to get to know right here, and all of the info about Issue Two is right here.



  1. Congratulations!!! Can't wait to read your piece :)

  2. I am so happy you challenged yourself and I can't wait for you to see your stuff in print!

  3. Sherrie, that's awesome, congratulations!! Kindred looks great, I'd never heard of it before.
