Women In Media Spotlight: Nikki Frias
Girltellme.com is a tribe of diverse women writers and creators looking for a realistic space to create. No pressure, just good vibes towards the betterment of people. Publish writers to help build a portfolio while making them laugh in the process.
Tammy Reese: How did Girl Tell Me come about?
Nikki Frias: Girltellme.com evolved from a personal blog to a publishing platform after realizing how difficult it was to build a portfolio and be published. After multiple empty response emails, I decided I wanted to be a “yes” in the writing world. So…I created it. After over a year, we’ve published over 100 writers and have expanded to writing events, merchandise, and a comedy empowerment powerhouse towards achieving goals.
Tammy Reese: What impact do you intend to make through your platform?
Nikki Frias: Girltellme.com aims to break the stigma that writing is intended for only the Hemmingway’s and Stephen King’s of the world. We also hope to encourage and empower our community to strive for their writing goals, even if it’s while sitting on the couch eating a pint of ice cream before dinner.
Tammy Reese: When you think of women empowerment, what comes to mind?
Nikki Frias: I think of MY community of women who are diverse, smart, and all living fully through purpose; whether it be work, dating, motherhood, or building empires. We support one another, through it all.
Tammy Reese: What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?
Nikki Frias: I enjoy meeting new people and reading their stories. It also never gets old when I see the notes from writers who have never been published or when I hear “I just finished my book.”
Tammy Reese: How do you use your platform to empower others?
Nikki Frias: We promote, publish and tirelessly connect people to opportunities we know. Girl Tell Me is a brand that spreads the love in every way possible, no bullshit- we might not be able to help with some requests, but we know someone who can.
Tammy Reese: What else would you like for our readers to know about the work that you do?
Nikki Frias: If you ever want to be published send your pitches or thoughts to email@example.com! We additionally have an upcoming event on eventbrite.com for free here called “Get Your Life Write”
