Working with Christina Katz as the Associate Editor and Columnist for the Writer Mama Zine over the past year has been a wonderful experience. Christina is such a great writing mentor and I feel lucky to have learned from her and to have her support. However, I’ve decided to step down as Associate Editor because I need to focus on paying markets. I told Christina that this would have been my perfect job if only I was making some money. Agh! I hate to have to turn an opportunity like this down, and I hope it’s not a mistake, but money is tight for us, as it is for the rest of the country, and I’ve got to spend my time pitching money making opportunities.
