I’m celebrating a third place contest win for the personal blog, “Confess Already: The Power of Disclosure in Writing”!
The win was judged by the 2023 New Mexico Press Women (NMPW) Communications Contest, the largest inclusive media organization in New Mexico.
I submitted this blog because I got to practice some of my favorite things, including the integration of metaphors, family narrative, scientific evidence, and unresolved resolution.
While I am certain the blog could still use some revision, I’m glad I submitted it to the contest and am grateful for the award.
The content attracts those who are interested in writing as a healing modality. The metaphors about confession invite readers to grapple with the complexity of confession; in the end, the blog encourages readers to see the power of confession to liberate the silences in one’s life and to bring about emotional benefits.
