Happy Galentine’s Day

Galentine’s Day is a holiday made-up by fictional character Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler’s Rikki Writescharacter in Parks and Recreation) that I celebrate in real life.

In the first season of Parks and Recreation, Leslie announces that she celebrates the women in her life on the day before Valentine’s Day every year. Since then, many women have followed suit, and now more than ever we need a nationally-recognized day to celebrate the amazing things that women are accomplishing.

So in the spirit of Galentine’s Day, I’d like to recognize (and recommend) a number of fellow female writers who are close to my heart. Read them. Love them. Celebrate them. Share them on Twitter.
