In the world of literature, the voices of female authors have historically faced challenges in being heard and recognized. However, here at Project Seed Money we are actively working to change that narrative. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Tiffany Vakilian, the brilliant mind behind Speak Fire Publishing, to discuss the importance of empowering women writers and the role that Project Seed Money plays in this endeavor.
Empowering Women Writers
Tiffany Vakilian is not just the owner of Speak Fire Publishing; she is also an accomplished author and editor. Her passion for literature and her commitment to uplifting underrepresented voices, especially those of female authors, shine through in every aspect of her work. As we delved into our conversation, it became evident that empowering women writers is not just a mission for Tiffany—it’s a calling.
Writing Tips & Inspiration
During our interview, Tiffany graciously shared a plethora of writing tips and insights from her years of experience in the industry. Her advice was both practical and inspiring. One of the key takeaways was the importance of authenticity—of staying true to oneself and one’s unique voice, even in the face of criticism or doubt.
“It came with work. It came with taking leaps of faith. It came with overcoming my fear of ‘what if I’m not good enough? What if I fail? What if? What if? What if? What if I do the wrong thing? What if?
What if? What if? Fine.What if I do a great job? What if I meet my destiny? What if, six months from now, a whole different world that I didn’t see coming is standing there in front of me. What if I’m on a track to do something to change a person’s life.” -Tiffany Vakilian
As we wrapped up our conversation, it was clear that the journey to empower female authors is far from over. However, with trailblazers like Tiffany Vakilian leading the way, the future of literature looks brighter than ever. Through the unwavering dedication of individuals like Tiffany, we can create a world where every woman’s story has the opportunity to be told and celebrated. After all, the world is richer when we all have the opportunity to share our stories.
The Role of Project Seed Money
Project Seed Money is a grant funding business designed to provide financial support to aspiring female authors. It serves as a beacon of hope for those who may otherwise struggle to kickstart their writing careers due to financial constraints. We aim to level the playing field and ensure that talent and creativity, not financial resources, determine who gets to share their stories with the world.
“We’re so lucky. I mean, all of us who have the ability to share our stories with one another…to hold space for someone. If you can do that, you are a truly blessed person.” – Tiffany Vakilian
