End of an Era: Goodbye PitchWars

I woke up this morning to the news that PitchWars and its PitMad twitter party were ending.

Here’s my Goodbye and Thank you for all that they’ve brought to me — despite never having been a mentee.

Black Lives Matter

I’ve been outraged. I’ve been saddened. I’ve talked to my friends, my family. I’ve shouted at them. But publically? I’ve been silent.

What could I say? Shouldn’t I be listening to those who were suffering? If I spoke out, would I be speaking over those whose voices we need to hear?

My blog is about writing, not politics. I told myself this wasn’t the space. It wasn’t my fight, I should stay out of the firing range.

While people were being murdered? I was silent.
