Celia and I were both part of the 2nd co-hort of Creative Enterprise, a program for creative entrepreneurs here in Spokane (which happens to be run by the amazing Ginger Ewing, a friend of The Woodsy). Throughout the fall of 2017, I saw Celia on a regular basis, learned about her business, and secretly wondered… Read More Q & A With Celia Friedman: Interior Designer & Entreprenuer
A few years ago, Sandy and I worked down the hall from one another; she at Eastern Washington University’s Pride Center, and me in their Career Services department. We, quite literally, would often cross paths in the hallway of our building. When I learned that she’d launched The Black Lens, I was intrigued, but as… Read More Q & A With Sandra Williams, Editor & Publisher Of The Black Lens
Previously on Campaign Trailing: I discussed how I became interested in politics, and what led up to my introduction to Jessa Lewis, the candidate I’m working with. First, thanks for your patience, all. Life came up made this post a few days later than expected. Where were we? Oh yes, I was just about to tell… Read More Making a Lasting First Impression
The season of new year’s resolutions has come and gone. It’s solidly into March and spring is just around the corner. I (Julia) came into 2018 bright with excitement for all of the new tasks on my list, and ready to get to work. I had plans! I had ideas! I had a word of… Read More What’s In A Word?

For the majority of my life, I’ve never really thought politics were for me. My main exposure to them came through the headlines I mostly skimmed every four years during election cycles, and from my loyal viewing of all HBO’s Veep (which I highly recommend). However, something has changed over the last year. Now, another… Read More Announcement: The Personal Is Political
Genevieve introduced herself to us this past fall, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share her profile here. She makes traveling the world sound both accessible and important, yet she still manages to appreciate the PNW (something we can relate to). Enjoy her awesome insights and if you need us, we’ll be over… Read More Q & A With Genevieve Hathaway: Founder Of ArchaeoAdventures Tours, Explorer, Photographer
Here in Spokane, we had just had the 2018 Women’s Persistence March, where thousands of people came out to champion various women’s issues and progressive causes. From my layman’s perspective, the vibe was bolder, braver, and even more determined than it had been at the 2017 Women’s March. The signs were saltier, the messages clearer,… Read More What’s It Like To Organize A Women’s March?
There’s no shortage of delightful things to pursue in the PNW, which is why we thought a checklist might help keep some of our current ideas organized. It’s part resolution/part bucket list since, admittedly, we didn’t reach all of our regionally-themed resolutions from last year. That said, isn’t going with the flow part of the… Read More The Woodsy’s 2018 Checklist
Those of you who’ve been following all along at home might have seen some of our social posts referencing Creative Enterprise, a 12-week business and professional development program that The Woodsy was privileged to be a part of.
