    Please share with any women riders/writers you know.


    If we persist our dreams will eventually triumph.

    --Author Unknown

    This is the official invitation to all persistent women over forty who ride bicycles to pull out your pens, pencils or laptops and get ready to write.  The second volume of Pedal by Pedal: A Zine for Women Over Forty Who Ride Bicycles is in the works, with the theme: persist.

    If you are a woman 40 or over, ride bicycles (near, far, on trails, roads, or just around your neighborhood), and have an interest in sharing your story, hit me up by sending your ideas, questions, or submissions to rocbikewriter@gmail.com  

    The guidelines for submissions are:

    +nonfiction short stories/personal narratives that are no more than 1000 words;

    +poetry/haiku that can fit on a standard 8”x 11” sheet of paper;

    +attention to the theme, persist.

    +only one submission per rider/writer will be considered.

    Deadline for submission is June 7, 2017.   If you have any questions, concerns, feedback, or would like some guidance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Additionally, if you have an idea and would like to run (ahem, pedal) through it with someone, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Remuneration for works included in volume two will be two copies of the zine. 

    The first volume of Pedal by Pedal was a HUGE success!  I am so excited to see what volume two is going to bring!

    Pedal on, brilliant women!
