Largo-Kettering Library

Largo, MD 20774

The publishing industry is always changing, but the unique challenges women face have remained constant. In this presentation, Ariele Sieling, author and board member of non-profit Yellow Arrow Publishing, will give an overview of the most recent statistics related to women in publishing, share some personal experiences, and highlight some of the main challenges of being a woman in publishing. She will also discuss a few strategies for helping women overcome the obstacles facing them and how we can all strive for a more equal balance of voices in literature.

Ariele Sieling was born and raised among the trees and her dad’s honeybees. She began writing at an early age, and now has two sci-fi series, Land of Szornyek and The Sagittan Chronicles, and a children’s book series called Rutherford the Unicorn Sheep. She has been featured in numerous anthologies (most recently Beamed Up by Amphibian Press), Bewildering Stories Magazine, and Bee Culture Magazine. She lives in Baltimore with her husband, a dog, three cats, and a fish. You can learn more at http://www.arielesieling.com or follow her on Instagram @arielesieling.

Yellow Arrow Publishing supports and inspires writers identifying as women through publication and access to the literary arts. This project is based in Baltimore City with a focus on literary events and publishing local writers. The Yellow Arrow House, our home for workshops, classes and literary events, opens in January, 2020.
