A Message From Our Founder

An update and a personal request from our Founder and Editor In Chief.

Dear Reader,

You don't oft hear from me directly with a request, but I have some questions and am in need of your wisdom and feedback.

The Fold is growing and as we expand our content offerings, we want to know what piques your interest, what you want to see more of and, yes, what you want to see less of from this publication.

We also want to know how you experience this space — are you a newsletter only reader? Do you just follow along via social media? Do you visit the site, or is it a combination of all three?

I would love to know if you are curious about the inner-workings of The Fold: Would you want to see more of the behind-the-scenes action? Would you like to get to know our team and contributors (either online or in person via events and panels)? Would you appreciate more career focused content?

We have created a brief 3 minute survey and I would greatly appreciate you taking a few moments to complete it. Your thoughts are essential and help guide the quality content and compelling stories we bring to The Fold.

Ultimately this space was created to support and explore the lives of women like you (and me), and to celebrate all that it means to be a woman of an "uncertain age" in today's society. Thank you for helping me elevate this mission, thank you for your time and thank you for reading!
