About

Twenty-Six : Poetic Affirmations for Women, is meant to inspire and motivate anyone who struggles with self-acceptance and self-love... particularly those who have historically been downtrodden and held to a different societal beauty standard. 

Twenty-Six transcends the physical, to place emphasis on the beauty within our many personalities, skills, talents and natural abilities. It seeks to overcome stereotypes and fairytales embedded within us from childhood onward, encouraging readers to embrace themselves, through poetry, on this journey to self-love and self-appreciation.

Risks and challenges

Twenty-Six will be self-published. I am a graphic designer, by trade and education. With formal training and corporate/ad agency experience designing books and print materials, I don't foresee the typical challenges that someone without experience, or needing to hire a designer would face.

My greatest risk in undertaking this project is with outside contributors/poets potentially missing deadlines. However, each poet is only responsible for one poem or piece. My intended deadline for poets will be 30 days, with a check-in every week. If push comes to shove, I am sure I could depend on a few of the other poets to write additional pieces.

Lastly, there could be the typical issues related to shipping, such as late or lost shipments.
