The New Skirts and Kicks: Submissions Guidelines

Skirts and Kicks is changing.

This blog has gone through many iterations since its inception in February 2019. What started as a satirical fashion/sneaker Instagram account and quickly evolved into a personal blog, has now become more of an instagram community of millennial Jews who indirectly engage with each other through my DM’s.

But in recent months, the blog has felt a little stale for me. Skirts and Kicks has always been a passion project for me, and lately, I have been looking for ways to re-instill the energy I once felt for this space back into the blog. In the last year or so, I made a conscious effort to make the blog less my own and more everyone else’s, but because of that, I started sharing my opinion less and writing essays so infrequently I felt like my voice was getting lost. And the creative space that I originally created feels very far from where Skirts and Kicks is operating now.

I spent a lot of time over the past few months trying to come up with ways to update this space. And ultimately I tried to drill down what it is I love most about Skirts and Kicks. What is it that makes me passionate about this project, and how can I turn that into this next phase?

From the Instagram: I realized I love the honesty, the stories, the people. The rawness and the connection the conversations create. The opportunity for learning and growth.

From my blog: I loved being able to write, to edit, to share. Finding spaces to share personal essays is actually more challenging than you think, and I really appreciated having that space (even if only a handful of people actually read them).

So that’s how we get to here: The next phase of Skirts and Kicks. A combination of the two.

Phase After.

A highly curated space for you to share your TRUE stories about love and relationships as millennial Jew.
