I’m Liz Henry and my writing usually falls into three categories: epic bitch rant, feminism and hot mess.
I’m only slightly kidding.
Currently I live in Philadelphia, but I’m moving to Atlanta, Georgia. It’s all very Lifetime. I have a BA in English literature and a Masters in hard knocks courtesy of Annie and not that guy with 99 problems (which I also have). A commenter on Jezebel said my writing is like “a toddler smashing blocks.”
That was because I wrote that some random dude was a douche. You have been forewarned, Internet.
I was named a BlogHer Voice of the Year in 2012 for this post and was a cast member in Listen To Your Mother. My writing will be featured in a forthcoming book from Seal Press later this year and you can buy the Kindle edition of Voices of the Year here. I’ve written columns for Aiming Low, Everyday Family, and iVillage. I’ve been featured on NBC News in Philadelphia, New York City and Chicago and Jennifer Weiner once told me she couldn’t stop reading this site. I just about died.
This website covers everything from political and social commentary to the randomness of life as it happens. I’m an outspoken advocate for the underdog and one of the 2-percent of teen moms that graduated college before they turned 30. Sometimes I write about adoption, you know, to keep it light. I also write about my mother who put me in a mink when I was two, prefer I slather myself in Lancome and diet until I’m in the grave. She’s one helluva lady.
