Scribe: Tell us a little about why you founded Hollering Woman Press, the meaning of its name, and its mission.
LuLynne Streeter: As three independent female artists, we decided to collaborate and define a space where creativity and diversity could move in the same direction. We chose Hollering Woman as our name and logo because it reflected a powerful female voice and our deep Texas roots. Our mission is to promote and support independent and emerging artists in all genres from literary, musical, visual, and performing arts.
Scribe: Hollering Woman Press provides a lot of different services — from editing to writing workshops—could you tell us more about what you offer?
LS: HWP&E offers standard pre-publication literary services, promotional activities, mentoring, and writer workshops and classes.
Scribe: What is the biggest take away from working with Hollering Woman Press?
LS: HWP&E offers the author the opportunity to work with a multi-generational staff that is supportive and hands-on in their approach. We know the goal of all writers, whether it is the traditional or Indie journey, is publication.
Scribe: As a writer yourself, what is one piece of advice you’d give to aspiring writers?
LS: As we say in our writer workshops: “Writers Write & Write & . . .”
Scribe: What’s important to you about supporting the Writers’ League of Texas and being a community member?
LS: As a Texas business and Texas writers, we are honored to have the opportunity to work with and support the premier writing organization in the state.
Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?
LS: I recently read Outsider Art in Texas: Lone Stars by Jay Wehnert and published by Texas A&M University Press. It examines the lives and motivations of practicing Texas artists outside the mainstream. A topic that is dear to the heart of Hollering Woman Press.
Scribe: Anything else you’d like to share?
TB: For the staff at HWP&E supporting our local communities and the state matters. Through involvement in the arts, journalism, conservation and social issues, we have found our voice!
