I discovered Ashley C Ford a few years ago on Lena Dunham’s podcast Women of the Hour. After listening to her very soothing voice for the hour and connecting with what she spoke, I started following her on Twitter (highly recommend) and reading every essay she’s ever written. She’s one of the most honest and talented writers I’ve ever read and I admire her deeply….which you’ll hear me gush about throughout this episode. If you have gotten any of my recent emails or if your in the podcast facebook group it’s likely you have seen me sharing Ashley Ford’s writings. Specifically this last essay she did which I’ve shared a bunch. Ashley is a brilliant, and incredibly authentic–the type of person I could spend all day talking with. She has been one of my mentors from afar and I’m super excited to continue to learn from her and hopefully take classes from her eventually. In today’s conversation we explore topics like “feeling enough”, relationships, contentment, of course writing, moving to New York from the Midwest, body image, and the importance of communication. I loved this episode and I love this person.
